The statistical population of this research was the students of different grades of physical education at Payam Noor University in Tehran. This research was carried out based on random-stratified sampling and the number of samples was 125 students based on Morgan’s table. The research tool was a researcher-made questionnaire. In order to analyze the data obtained from the questionnaire, using SPSS statistical software, Kolmogorov-Smirnov, t-test, analysis of variance (ANOVA), Levin and Tukey Tests, were used in accordance with the research hypotheses. The status of three variables of honesty, justice, responsibility of media ethics in sports programs was evaluated at a favorable level. According to the demographic variable of age, a significant difference was observed between students’ views on the component of media ethics and justice in sports programs. There was no significant difference between the groups of men and women in the variables of honesty, justice, responsibility and media ethics.
