CHAPTER ONE
1.0                     INTRODUCTION
1.1        BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The social responsibility theory of the press was an antidote to the colossal abuses of Libertarian theory of the press. The theory (social) gave birth to journalistic associations with codes of ethics.
Prior to the social responsibility theory of the press then, the libertarian theory was rocked with excessive negative practices. The inaugural social responsibility theory, however, put a stop to the negative practices and set up some standards of practical for journalist.

Journalism makes possible the cooperation among citizens that is critical to a civilized society. Citizens cannot function together as a community unless they share a common body of information about their weather.

Since the public cannot determine the degree of trust they can process upon journalists, how objectives are, effectiveness of journalists, the accountability and responsibility level of journalists among others. It is deem responsible to find out what point journalist stick to the professions believe and morality.
