Marcus: For most ethical dilemmas the journalist is likely to face, traditional journalistic ethics is clear, adequate, and essentially correct. For example, when journalists have uncovered newsworthy information, they should go to press with it as soon as possible. No delay motivated by the journalistsâ€™ personal or professional interests is permissible.
Anita: Well, Marcus, of course interesting and important information should be brought before the publicâ€”that is a journalistâ€™s job. But in the typical case, where a journalist has some information but is in a quandary about whether it is yet important or â€œnewsworthy,â€

(A) whether a piece of information is or is not newsworthy can raise ethical dilemmas for journalists
- not important

(B) there are circumstances in which it would be ethically wrong for a journalist to go to press with legitimately acquired, newsworthy information

(C) the most serious professional dilemmas that a journalist is likely to face are not ethical dilemmas
- not important

(D) there are no ethical dilemmas that a journalist is likely to face that would not be conclusively resolved by an adequate system of journalistic ethics
- not important

(E) For a system of journalistic ethics to be adequate it must be able to provide guidance in every case in which a journalist must make a professional decision

Between B and E, I'll go with E. B says that in some cases, even where guidelines are clear, it is not ethical to go on to press newsworthy information.

E however raises the notion that for the ethics to be adequate guidance must be provided for every possible case. This will tie in with Anita's conclusion that in a typical case, this guidance is inadequate.

E for me.
