The article aims to make a connection between the phenomenology of moral action and professional ethics. Mainly, we try to instil in the research on journalism ethics some of the Husserlian thoughts regarding the ethical ideal of the self-norming and self-improvement of persons - as citizens, parents and, more important, as professionals. The article relies on the phenomenology of "professional calling", in order to solve a particular moral dilemma engendered by some pro-fascist statements uttered in a television interview. Furthermore, it concentrates on the similarities between the Husserlian phenomenology of moral life and the Aristotelian virtue ethics.
