Since the introduction of radio and television news, journalism has gone through multiple transformations, but each time it has been sustained by a commitment to basic values and best practices. Journalism Ethics is a reminder, a defense and an elucidation of core journalistic values, with particular emphasis on the interplay of theory, conceptual analysis and practice. The book begins with a sophisticated model for ethical decision-making, one that connects classical theories with the central purposes of journalism. Top scholars from philosophy, journalism and communications offer essays on such topics as objectivity, privacy, confidentiality, conflict of interest, the history of journalism, online journalism, and the definition of a journalist. The result is a guide to ethically sound and socially justified journalism-in whatever form that practice emerges. Journalism Ethics will appeal to students and teachers of journalism ethics, as well as journalists and practical ethicists in general.

As Lee Wilkins Argues in Her Article in This Collection, Journalism Seems to Come Into its Own During Natural Disasters. The Sheer Drama of Such Events Makes for Great Storytelling and Provides a National Showcase for the Talents of Local Reporters. This Was Illustrated Again in 2005 When the Great Flood Caused by Hurricane Katrina Overcame New Orleans and Chased Out the Staff of the Times-Picayune. At First, the Paper Was Unable to Issue a Print Edi-Tion and Instead Published on its Affiliated Nola ... [REVIEW]Sandra L. Borden
In Nearly Every Survey of Public Opinion and the Media, Privacy is a Premiere Issue If the Press Wishes to Main its Credibility. The Laws Safeguarding Privacy Are Impressive, but Legal Prescriptions Are an Inadequate Foundation for the News Business. Privacy is Not a Legal Right Only but a Moral Good. For All of the Sophistication of Case Law and Tort Law in Protecting Privacy, Legal Definitions Do Not Match Today's Challenges. Merely Following the Letter of the Law Presumes the Law Can Be Determined ... [REVIEW]Clifford G. Christians
At the December 2001 Media Week Conference for Investors, Sponsored by Credit Suisse and Staged in the Grand Ballroom of the Plaza Hotel, Arthur Sulzberger Jr. Led the New York Times Presentation Team. Business Was Only Fair After Eight Months of Recession, but Chairman Sulzberger Bantered Ligh-Tly with Then CEO Russ Lewis. Putting on His Publisher's Hat, an Exuberant Sulzberger Turned to Editorial Matters. He Bobbed on the Balls of His Feet at the Podium as He Talked About His Flagship Paper's Coverage ...

The Aim of This Chapter is to Help Readers Understand Their Responsibilities as Persons and as Journalists, and to Provide Them with a Framework for Addressing the Ethical Issues That Routinely Arise in the Practice of Journalism. Our Approach, Which is Informed by the Basic Tenets of Western Ethical Tradi-Tions and Which Borrows From Ozar's and Elliott's Previous Works, Develops From the Abstract to the Concrete. 1 That is, We Move From a Discussion of the Purpose of Journalism, and the Specific Values ...

Freedom House, an Organization That Promotes Democratic Values Around Theworld, Annually Ranks Nations by the Amount of Freedom They Accord to the Press.

Journalists, Embracing the Internet with Varying Degrees of Enthusiasm, Have Gradually Adapted to Characteristics of the Medium. Many of Those Adapta-Tions Have Involved Work Practices, in Particular Those to Accommodate Delivery of Multimedia Content—Text, Audio, Video, and so On. Although This “Conver-Gence” Involves Some Ethical Issues, It Requires Adjustments Mostly in Skills and Techniques. [REVIEW]Jane B. Singer
B Etween Falling Media Revenues and the Global Financial Crisis, the World in Autumn 2008 Had Become Topsy-Turvy for Journalists. The Dow Jones Index Had Lost $1 Trillion in Just One Week, and the Newspaper Industry Was in Such Disarray That Fifty Media CEOs Huddled in a Closed-Door “Crisis Summit” to Attempt to Resuscitate the Industry and Stem the Tide of Declining Ad Revenues and Resulting Journalist Layoffs.

C Onflict of Interest has Become a Signature Element in the Claim by Internet-Based Commentators to Moral Superiority Over Their Legacy News Media Counterparts. The Insistence of so-Called Mainstream Journalists That They Are Free Not Just of Private Material Entanglements but of Personal Sympathies That Might Tilt Their Reporting and Commentary is Brandished as a Prime Exhibit in the Indictment of the Media Establishment as Hypocritical, Secretly Biased, and Unworthy of Public Trust.Edward Wasserman
Global News Media Have Contributed to a World Where We Are Confronted with the Faces of Others We Will Never Meet. Although the Interconnec-Tions Between People in a Globalized World Are Often Overstated, It is Hard Not to Agree with Zygmunt Bauman When He Speaks of “Being Aware of the Pain, Mis-Ery and Suffering of Countless People Whom We Will Never Meet in Person.” 1 In Today's Globalized World, News Media Have Brought Distant People Closer, and the Media Confront Us with a Moral Responsibility for ...
