An explanation and a method for the ethics of journalism.
This chapter aims to help readers understand their responsibilities as persons and as journalists, and to provide them with a framework for addressing the ethical issues that routinely arise in the practice of journalism. The approach, which is informed by the basic tenets of Western ethical traditions and which borrows from Ozar's and Elliott's previous works, develops from the abstract to the concrete. That is, it moves from a discussion of the purpose of journalism, and the specific values that emerge from that purpose, to ideal relationships and practice rules, and ultimately, to a recommended method.
