“For reporters, withholding valuable information from the public is anathema. But in a world in which foreign intelligence services hack, leak and fabricate, journalists will have to use extreme caution and extra transparency.” This is a really interesting take on the ethics in journalism.

Especially as politics in various countries around the world gets more polarised, expect more of this
