This book is a comprehensive introduction to media ethics and an
exploration of how it must change to adapt to today's media
revolution. Using an ethical framework for the new 'mixed media'
ethics - taking in the global, interactive media produced by both
citizens and professionals - Stephen J. A. Ward discusses the
ethical issues which occur in both mainstream and non-mainstream
media, from newspapers and broadcast to social media users and
bloggers. He re-defines traditional conceptions of journalistic
truth-seeking, objectivity and minimizing harm, and examines the
responsible use of images in an image-saturated public sphere. He
also draws the contours of a future media ethics for the 'new
mainstream media' and puts forward cosmopolitan principles for a
global media ethics. His book will be invaluable for all students
of media and for others who are interested in media ethics.
