    On 10 January 2017, the Ethical Journalism Network (EJN) published their latest report Ethics in the News. The report engages with key ethical challenges for the media in the post-truth era and also gives journalists some key tips on ethical survival techniques. Moving beyond the dominant discourse of it being a solely 'western media' crisis, it traverses its myriad ramifications around the world in the form of information warfare between India and Pakistan, hate speech in East Asia, and clamp downs on freedom of expression in Turkey among others. It also highlights the best practices and solutions that help strengthen media professionalism and promote reliability and trust in journalism.
