In the world of journalism, it is hard to pinpoint the ethical and moral values. The question remains, "Is there any ethics in media at all?", "Who decides what to show or publish?", "Is media blamable or media practitioners?." And there seems no clear-cut answer to it. However, the discourse of media ethics explores and widen its area while applying some moral and ethical principles to resolve media issues.
One of such issues is the autonomy to decide the contents of media. My paper contends to unfold the different perspective of autonomy or restrictions in media for publishing any content. However, there is no apparent answer to this and the concept of autonomy seems ambiguous in journalism.
