Dietrich Bonhoeffer and communicating "the truth": Words of wisdom for journalists

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 15 (1):5 – 16 (2000)
Before being executed by the Nazis at the age of 39, Dietrich Bonhoeffer had produced enough material, according to Howell (1995), to fill 16 volumes of theological reflections. Nevertheless, Howell noted, Dietrich Bonhoeffer is not a household name. That is unfortunate. One of Bonhoeffer's most inspiring efforts-from the perspective of mass media ethics-centered around his unfinished attempt to define "what is meant by telling the truth." As is often the case with truly outstanding thinkers, his reflections in this regard appear even more timely today than when he composed them well over 50 years ago.
