Morrish, D. W. (2008). Testosterone and growth hormone: Use and misuse in sports. The
Canadian Journal of Diagnosis, 25(3), 82-86. Retrieved from http://www.stacommunications.com/journals/diagnosis/2008/03-March%202008/082Morrish%28Testosterone%29.pdf The research found that there is little connection between anabolic-androgenic steroid use and
“’roid rages” in random, blind trials. Instead, the research showed that steroid use exacerbated already present personality traits. Morrish dissects behavioral patterns to determine if steroid users are more likely to engage in high-risk behaviors. This source attempts to debunk the whole concept of “’roid rage” as it is presented in the media by looking at steroid use in terms of the high-risk nature of the behavior.
Society of Professional Journalists. (2011). SPJ code of ethics. Retrieved from http://www.spj.org/ethicscode.asp The source defines the code of ethics for professional journalists. Although the code is not a mandated set of guidelines, it should act as the model for journalistic behavior in order to maintain integrity. Utilizing the code of ethics, it is possible to determine whether or not the journalistic community acted responsibly in the reporting of the Benoit murder-suicide.
