A Code of Ethics could be required by congress, but neither Republicans nor democrats will tackle this issue and private citizens do not have the time or money to pursue the court battle that will be required to get a Code of Ethics in place.
I am establishing a NARJ to pay individuals for proof of Code of Ethics violation and to pay for legal fees to get a Code of Ethics established by suing relative to a Code of Ethics that should be in place. If the lawsuit is won, the Code of Ethics now has legal standing.
I promise to use all the funds from the sale of this book to bring a lawsuit against a journalist using the violation of The NSJ Code of Ethics. When the case is won in a court, that will formally establish a Code of Ethics that can be used for later lawsuits.
