Media Ethics: Issues and Cases

By Philip Patterson, Lee Wilkins, Chad Painter
Rowman & Littlefield Publishing


Media Ethics, Ninth Edition is a diverse, classroom tested compilation of 60 diverse cases that will help students prepare for the ethical situations they will confront in their media careers. Ninety percent of the cases are based on actual events, and authors from many institutions and media outlets contributed both real-life and hypothetical cases. There is a strong focus on ethical theory and practice throughout the book, which works well as both a main text in a media ethics course, and in an 'across the curriculum' approach in other media courses. Every chapter has been revised to include the most significant research and thinking about the individual topics in the field, including more attention to emerging ethical theory in the areas of privacy, truth telling, and the political role of the news media. Key updates to the Ninth Edition: - A new chapter devoted to the theory and practice of social justice - 25 new cases covering current topics as diverse as “weedvertising,” “Doxxing,” drones, and sexual harassment in the newsroom - The implications of digital content throughout multiple media industries and platforms - Fake news - Technological invasions of privacy - The blending of entertainment, infotainment, and news
