Electronic mail and listservs: Effective journalistic ethical fora?

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 16 (4):293 – 304 (2001)
This exploratory study investigated the ramifications of e-mail and listservs as modes of journalistic ethical discussion. Results of the e-mail questionnaire to online newspaper journalists indicated that, although American online journalists overwhelmingly use e-mail to conduct both professional and personal business, it is unlikely that many are logging on to electronic discussion groups to discuss ethical issues. Moreover, this study suggests that the "informality" of listservs may reflect their perceived ineffectiveness and consequent underutilization by journalists. Journalists who do participate in listservs may view the "ethical" component as a minor element of their overall Web activities.
