It's important for a small business to engage in ethical dealings with news media when trying to promote and improve the reputation of the firm. This doesn't mean that your business is required to divulge every detail, piece of proprietary information, or organizational plan, but it is important to provide the media with enough information so they can release the most correct and truthful version of any story or plan. Certain interactions with the media should remain off limits because they are considered unethical in the United States. For example, while it might seem like a good idea to send a journalist a complimentary product or service from your business to thank that person for positive news coverage, this is not considered ethical behavior by the Public Relations Society of America. It's the responsibility of your business's public relations team to ensure they're exercising ethical practices when dealing with the media.
