Abstract

Freedom of expression, gathered fundamental right in our Constitution, is the frame that must put into context the use of the sources of intelligence by the journalists. Talking about freedom of expression therefore is to talk about responsibility, ethics, and professional deontology. It is, definitely, to examine the role of the journalist as a communicator. And one of the aspects that measures the reliability of the labor of the journalist comes given by the selection and suitable use of the sources of information that he handles.
