9780131825390: Journalistic Ethics: Moral Responsibility in the Media

Journalistic Ethics: Moral Responsibility in the Media examines the moral rights and responsibilities of journalists to provide what Dale Jacquette calls “truth telling in the public interest.” With 31 case studies from contemporary journalistic practice, the book demonstrates the immediate practical implications of ethics for working journalists as well as for those who read or watch the news. This case-study approach is paired with a theoretical grounding, and issues include freedom of the press, censorship and withholding sensitive information for the greater public good, protection of confidential sources, journalistic respect for privacy, objectivity, perspective and bias, and editorial license and its obligations. This is a book for anyone who now works in journalism, or is considering a career as a journalist. It is also important groundwork for everyone who follows the day's events in newspapers, radio, television, or on the internet.

Product Description:

For courses on journalistic ethics, media ethics, media in general, applied ethics, journalism, and journalistic integrity.

 

 By combining accessible theory with case studies and applications, this book offers both a solid framework for philosophical discussions of journalistic ethics and a sourcebook that journalism students can use in thinking about the moral implications of their intended profession.

 

Dale Jacquette wrote the book in order to explore the limitations of a free and responsible press against the pressures and conflicts encountered by journalists.  This book provides a model and set of moral ideals for practicing and aspiring journalists, with the end result being an improvement in the quality and ethical standards of news reporting by readers who have become more aware of the moral implications of their work.

 

From the Back Cover:

We all depend in many ways on accurate, timely news reporting, but is the accuracy of news a given? And how much responsibility does a journalist have for its accuracy?
