Synopsis

Ethics and Journalism by Karen Sanders

What are ethics? Why does ethical journalism matter? How do ethics affect good journalism? Ethics and Journalism provides a comprehensive overview of the main approaches to ethical enquiry in Western journalism. It examines the ethical dilemmas faced by journalists in all areas of the media and sets our ways of achieving ethical journalism. Ethics and Journalism: - Explores such subjects as: private lives and the public interest, relations to sources and coverage of death, disease and destruction - Examines the role of regulation and self-regulation of the media industry - Discusses strategies of good journalism - Thoroughly examines the role of industry codes. Ethics and Journalism is informed by interviews with top journalists and editors and is written in a clear and accessible style. It includes an exhaustive bibliography as well as an excellent list of relevant web-sites. It will be essential reading for all journalism, media and politics students studying journalism and ethics, as well as for those who already work in the media and are interested in understanding ethical issues.

Reviews

The approach taken in many chapters provides readers with a summary of philosophical perspectives relevant to the topic, contemporary examples from print or broadcast news media, but also relevant references from literature or film; for example, including lines from Hamlet or the film Network. Given the international diversity of examples, her text would be highly appropriate for a course with a global communication perspective. -- Joan Conners * A Quarterly Review of Communication Research *
