about

This book, intended as a core text for a basic course on Media Ethics, takes a distinctive approach to the study of ethics. Focusing on one historic episode per chapter, the book is divided into three parts that represent the three major functions of the media within democratic societies:news, persuasion, and entertainment. This sets the book apart from many ethics books, which are generally located within the journalistic paradigm. Blending classic and contemporary cases, these three very well known authors discuss media ethics with a thorough grounding in theory, particularly communitarian theory, an antidote to the more widely discussed libertarian theory. Reviewers noted a distinctly international feeling to the book,considered a plus, as well as good coverage of contemporary topics like blogging and entertainment.
