Italy: justification of controversial reporting methods by journalists in 2015

This statistic illustrates the prevailing justifications of controversial reporting methods among Italian journalists in 2015. According to the study results, the most commonly accepted illicit reporting practice among respondents was using confidential documents without authorization: almost 80 percent of respondents believed such behavior was always or occasionally justified. By contrast, only two percent of respondents thought that accepting money from sources was acceptable behavior.
