Thomson Reuters' Announces Blogging Ethics Code

Apr 29, 2008

The newly merged Thomson Reuters news agency produced a new code of ethics that allows employees to mention Thomson Reuters in a personal blog, but bans employees from blogging about confidential information and company clients. It also states that employees' blogs cannot be used for internal communications among co-workers, and that a personal blog cannot be used to air any grievances with co-workers, the company itself, or the company's clients. The code also bars staff from taking gifts.
