From reading and studying so many journalistic cases that journalists encounter making ethical decisions before covering stories, I found it is pretty important to draw a list from all the cases and checklists and create a list of personal codes that I may apply in my future career as a journalist or media specialist.
A Chinese student was found dead on Sept.30th. The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office identified 23-year-old Syracuse University student, Xiaopeng Yuan, who was a third year math major in the College of Arts and Sciences, originally from Qingdao, China (originally reported Beijing, but it’s a mistake). His body was discovered behind Springfield Garden Apartments located on Caton Drive on Friday afternoon. Not yet suspects are identified until now, according to the police report from the Sheriff Office.
