Responsible Journalism addresses the contentious issue of defining journalistic responsibility. The authors identify the functions that news media take responsibility for performing in society and the philosophy behind specific obligations. They consider the relationship between news media responsibility and legal and press theories. They ask and answer many fundamental ethical questions concerning the media's role in Western democracies.
