This might be an interesting illustration (from MSF's Avril Benoît): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EF8VQyLKY
And, of course, the late and lamented INEPD gang brought some great humanitarian media spoof as well. Their site as well as their twitter streams (@inepdshane, @inepdanna, and especially @inepdmercedes) offer some classic satire.

The average newspaper reporter either doesn't care to or likely, doesn't have the time to understand badvocacy standards. They're just there to churn out the story, not wade into the ethics. I'd focus the question on the folks and outlets with the biggest microphones and reach, like, Nick Kristof, Eve Ensler, the UNICEF Ambassador du jour. They're more likely to be concerned about ethics and actually incorporate suggestions into their work. Here's one critique of Kristof (who I actually like and I'm glad he exists) that I wrote a few months back: http://seemurphy.blogspot.com/2010/02/foreign-affair-its-not-that-i-hate.html
As always, this blog raises important questions. Thanks.
