Synopsis

An engaging and original study of current issues in media ethics, this book challenges students to explore the relationship between media ethics and social change. It considers the potentially beneficial uses of media practice for humanity, addressing questions of inclusivity and diversity and specialist topics that are absent from other texts. Using case studies and exercises based on real-life experiences of journalists, newsmakers, policy makers and consumers, Valerie Alia invites readers to examine current media practice and develop strategies for ethical problem solving and decision-making. Topics discussed include: ethical theories; social scientific theories; the search for a responsible practice; internationalisation of the media; the ethics of interviewing; politicians, power and spin; media, minorities and gender; arts, sports and travel; ethics and images; changing technologies; and codes and principles.

Features * The only book to consider media ethics in the context of social change * Provides current examples of British and international media practice, theory, problem-solving exercises, workshop simulations and case studies * Includes original cartoons, rare photographs of great 'muckrakers', an annotated list of relevant films, and a full bibliography and index.
