Journal of Mass Media Ethics 14 (4):197 – 212 (1999)
|Abstract||The people's right to know and press rights to gather and publish information remain dominant justifications for controversial media activities. Yet, the power of the media to set the agenda for public discourse in our country warrants a careful analysis of these rights, their corresponding responsibilities, and their moral limits. This article examines the right to know and press freedom from the perspective of their shared purpose, facilitation of informed decision making. This article also demonstrates moral justification of limits on right to know and press freedom based on traditional ethics theories and media impact on public discourse.|
