High school students from 35 states and Guam who were attending George Mason University’s Washington Journalism and Media Conference discussed the quality of journalism and their career aspirations in media. They talked about elements of the Journalist’s Creed, a code of ethics written in 1906 by the University of Missouri School of Journalism’s founder, Walter Williams. Other topics included the role of opinion and commentary in journalism, and the effect of money on the news reporting industry. In addition, students revealed their sources of reliable news and information.

The Washington Journalism and Media Conference is an annual week-long program at George Mason University. Over 300 student leaders with high academic standing and a demonstrated interest in journalism and media attended the conference. Most students were either nominated by a teacher or were past participants in the program. close
