Quebec journalists agree to “professional journalist” designation

Well, this was ignored by English media, but J-Source reports that the Federation Professionelle des Journalistes du Quebec have voted to accept a form of professional designation, presumably to bring some order to a sometimes disorderly profession. I’ve been arguing for years that both journalism and PR, which each have low trust and reliability ratings with the public, should be regulated, as doctors, engineers, lawyers etc. have legal powers to regulate, including disbarring members for unethical behavior. I’d love to link to the article, but my new “improved” version of Firefox seems to have disabled that function. Find it in J-Source, April 11 2011.
