This new edition of The Ethical Journalist—a well-regarded and student-friendly introduction to journalism ethics—has been extensively revised and updated to meet the needs of the 21st century journalist working in the digital age. It educates aspiring journalists on ethical decision-making and gives them the tools to navigate a broad range of applied issues.

  • This second edition contains six new “Point of View” essays, eight new case studies, and a full glossary. The discussion focuses on topics such as the principles of fairness and accuracy, the duty of verification, the role of social media, the problems of plagiarism, fabrication, and conflicts of interest, business issues that affect journalism ethics, and questions relating to source relationships, privacy, and deception in reporting
  • Written by a veteran journalist with 41 years’ experience in the newsroom and nine in a university classroom, this textbook brings together Foreman’s authoritative and engaging voice with the viewpoints of distinguished print, broadcast, and online journalists, as well as insights from complex, real-world case studies. The text is supplemented by a companion website with resources for teachers and students, including: links to current articles discussing the subjects covered in each of the book’s chapters, and a teachers’ guide that offers sample syllabi, discussion guides, PowerPoint slides, sample quiz and exam questions, and links to audiovisual material. Attuned to the changing landscape of contemporary journalism, this text prepares students for the complex and nuanced decisions they will be required to make throughout their professional life
