Journalists have average honesty and ethics: Gallup Poll

The ethical standards of journalists are about average compared to other popular professions, according to a recent Gallup Poll. Most respondents said journalists have “average” honesty, while the number of positive and negative responses were about equal.

Nurses topped the poll. Almost 90% of respondents say nurses have high ethical standards. Nurses have earned the top spot in the annual poll each year they’ve been included except once in 2001 — just weeks after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks — when firefighters garnered the most praise.
