Events such as the phone-hacking scandal, Wikileaks and the Mohammed cartoons controversy have placed ethics of media at the centre of current debates. Media are not only centralised institutions, but also technologies and means through which we sustain relationships with each other. We live with and in media, and this book sketches and critiques the normative contours of our intensely mediated worlds. What are the 'ethics' of media? What forms would we expect them to take? Do digital media create new ethical dilemmas and what is our responsibility as spectators/witnesses? Bringing together philosophers and media scholars and drawing on a range of contemporary case studies, the book highlights the diversity of competing answers to the question, 'is there an ethics of media?'

Editorial Reviews

"Ethics of Media features a wealth of case studies that will appeal to anyone interested in the study of contemporary media praxis. It can pride itself on having brought together some excellent contributions by authors who are acknowledged experts in the field, and offers a discussion of issues that directly relate to the current state of media ecology, including the ethics of blogging, Wikileaks, war reporting and the crisis in press standards. I have little doubt that the book will establish itself as a reference work on media ethics." - Lieve Gies, University of Leicester, UK  "Ethics of Media offers a broad and yet remarkably deep account of what ethics means in the realm of enduring and emerging forms of public and social communication. Empirically rich and normatively provocative, it stands as a corrective to the abundant ambivalence about the prospects for responsible and accountable media." - Theodore L. Glasser, Stanford University, USA
