Working Media Members Code of Ethics
To be observed by the working media at any and all press rows.
The United States Basketball Writers Association reminds its colleagues to observe the rules of being respectful and courteous while working basketball games:
Institutions grant us the privilege to sit at the media table and use their facilities to write about (or broadcast) their schools to the world. We must all work together! Without the schools we have no jobs; without us, they have limited communication to their fans and supporters.
The arena is a common ground for all media types. The prime of some peoples' work is written and broadcast within the walls where basketball is played and distractions and inappropriate behavior are never warranted or necessary.
The USBWA kindly asks you observe the professionalism desired and regret that action may be taken against those who fail to observe this code.
Furthermore, the USBWA does not condone unprofessional behavior at any time by its members or others at any sporting event. Actions deemed inappropriate by any media member at press row should report the individual(s) to a security guard, usher, and/or host official immediately to be removed.
