    Technologizing of the Word: Toward a Theoretical and Ethical Understanding.George A. Gladney - 1991 - Journal of Mass Media Ethics 6 (2):93 – 105.
    This paper, first presented at the spring 1990 conference on Mass Media Ethics in the Information Age, compares and contrasts approaches of five scholars - Harold Innis, Marshall McLuhan, Walter Ong, Neil Postman, and Jacques Ellul - whose works are chief contributions to an influential communications theory that posits that the history of media technologies is central to the history of civilization, that media transformations result in social change, and that changes in the form of media technology alter the structure (...)

    Bringing Communication Technology Under Ethical Analysis: A Case Study of Newspaper Audiotex.George Albert Gladney - 1994 - Journal of Mass Media Ethics 9 (4):243 – 256.
    This study uses dialogic theory and philosophy of technology to provide an ethical framework for analysis of newspaper audiotex, or electronic voice information services. It concludes that growth of newspaper audiotex (a) is bound by notions of technological determinism and the technological imperative, (b) is driven by virtuosity values related more to personal aggrandizement of its developers than concern for consequences in the user sphere, and (c) signifies a shift in newspapers' communicative stance with readers to monologic mode emphasizing power/persuasion.

    Usa Today, its Imitators, and its Critics: Do Newsroom Staffs Face an Ethical Dilemma?George Albert Gladney - 1993 - Journal of Mass Media Ethics 8 (1):17 – 36.
    Many newspapers have emulated innovative news form and content associated with USA Today. At the same time, critics tutored in social responsibility theory have raised serious ethical concerns about this innovation. The situation would seem to pose an ethical dilemma for rank-and-file newsroom professionals. To illuminate the nature and extent of that dilemma, this study employed a two-step methodology: (a) a content analysis of the 230 largest U.S. dailies to identify two clusters of newspapers - adopters and nonadopters of the (...)

    The Effects of Euphemism Usage in Business Contexts.Terri L. Rittenburg, George Albert Gladney & Teresa Stephenson - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics 137 (2):315-320.
    Transparency is important in today’s business environment. The use of euphemisms decreases transparency yet is increasing in business and business education. This study examines the effects of euphemism on people’s attitudes toward actions and their intentions to perform those actions. It also measures the effect of oversight on attitudes and behavioral intentions. Using a 2 × 2 experimental design, we measured participants’ attitudes by employing a semantic differential scale and behavioral intentions by using a simple yes/no question regarding the action (...)
