Media lawyers as factors in the ethical decisions of journalists

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 12 (2):101 – 108 (1997)

Abstract
Me d i a lawyers were surveyed about their perceptions of journalism ethics, whether they discussed journalism ethics with their media clients, and whether they believed such nonlegal counseling were appropriate. The study found that most media lawyers do contribute to ethical decision making i n news organizations and believe the practice appropriate. It concludes that, as a result, indust y and academic proponents of journalistic ethics should target not only journalists but also media lawyers in their attempts to foster ethical decision making and public support for the news media.
