QuestionOr is it just a recommendation given to the media
Sounds like an essay question; discuss ethics in journalism within the framework of the 1st Amendment and the law of defamation. An interesting starting point would be New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254 (1964). There are different standards for public officials and private citizens. It's a fascinating area of law, but not really one to expound upon in a forum like this.
