Journalism Ethics : A Philosophical Approach Paperback / softback
Edited by Christopher Meyers
Part of the PRAC PROF ETHIC series
Since the introduction of radio and television news, journalism has gone through multiple transformations, but each time it has been sustained by a commitment to basic values and best practices.
Journalism Ethics is a reminder, a defense and an elucidation of core journalistic values, with particular emphasis on the interplay of theory, conceptual analysis and practice.
The book begins with a sophisticated model for ethical decision-making, one that connects classical theories with the central purposes of journalism.
Top scholars from philosophy, journalism and communications offer essays on such topics as objectivity, privacy, confidentiality, conflict of interest, thehistory of journalism, online journalism, and the definition of a journalist.
The result is a guide to ethically sound and socially justified journalism-in whatever form that practice emerges.
Journalism Ethics will appeal to students and teachers of journalism ethics, as well as journalists and practical ethicists in general.
