The aim of the this contribution is to highlight the ethico-professional duties of the journalists, as well as to analyze their rights. For this reason, we have gone into the rights enshrined in the Spanish Constitution so much of the journalist as of third persons who involved in the events dealt with by the media. Specifically, we have gone into the following constitutionally protected rights: the right to freedom of information and the right to one´s honour, to one´s personal and family privacy and to one's own image. In addition, we have analyzed different court judgements.
