Journal of Mass Media Ethics 3 (1):18 – 27 (1988)
|Abstract||This essay is a revision of “Rudiments of an Ethics of News Reporting,”; which won honorable mention in the 1985 Carol Burnett/University of Hawaii/ AEJMC Prize for Student Papers on Journalism Ethics. It argues that news reporting suffers from a misplaced faith in individual autonomy, a faith that resists a sense of social duty on the basis of negative freedom; therefore, journalism stands in need of a moral theory that recognizes community and personhood as fundamental human characteristics essential to ethical decision-making.|
