Medienethische Richtlinien wie der Pressekodex des Deutschen Presserates bieten Journalisten ohne Zweifel eine wichtige Entscheidungshilfe bei ethischen Abwägungen in Fragen von Recherche und Veröffentlichung. Doch Richtlinien, die zwangsläufig allgemein gehalten sein müssen, verwenden dehnbare Begriffe und hinken zuweilen der Entwicklung hinterher. Journalisten sollten sich daher nicht allein auf geschriebene Empfehlungen verlassen, sondern ihr Handeln stets verantwortungsbewusst auf mögliche Folgen hin kritisch hinterfragen. Der Beitrag ruft Journalisten, aber auch Medienunternehmen und Publikum dazu auf, sich ihrer eigenen Verantwortung innerhalb des massenmedialen Kommunikationsprozesses bewusst zu sein und diese wahrzunehmen.
