How much is too much? When will the Geno bashing stop?



Does the press have any codes of conduct?

I get it, everyone hates the Jets organization, their players and their fans but the whole Geno thing is getting out of control. We're talking about a 21 year old kid who has been a fairly ideal teammate, student and citizen. Now that he's with the Jets every "anonymous resource" is trashing this kid.

Is there a point that this turns into libel? Libel: a written or oral defamatory statement or representation that conveys an unjustly unfavorable impression.

It's getting to the point that I'm getting sick hearing this kids name dragged through the mud everyday. Maybe it's because I'm a Jet fan, maybe it's because I'm a parent but I really think it's because I think I'm a good person and care about others.

What do you guys think?

Here are a few paragraphs from the Press complaint Commission in the UK.

"THE editors' CODE

All members of the press have a duty to maintain the highest professional standards. The Code, which includes this preamble and the public interest exceptions below, sets the benchmark for those ethical standards, protecting both the rights of the individual and the public's right to know. It is the cornerstone of the system of self-regulation to which the industry has made a binding commitment.

It is essential that an agreed code be honoured not only to the letter but in the full spirit. It should not be interpreted so narrowly as to compromise its commitment to respect the rights of the individual, nor so broadly that it constitutes an unnecessary interference with freedom of expression or prevents publication in the public interest."
