Book Description

1 July 2007 0765615746 978-0765615749
Online media present both old and new ethical issues for journalists who must make decisions in an interactive, instantaneous environment short on normative standards or guidelines. This user-friendly text guides prospective and professional journalists through ethical questions encountered only online.Including real-life examples and perspectives from online journalists in every chapter, the book examines the issues of gathering information, reporting, interviewing, and writing for mainstream news organizations on the Web. It considers the ethical implications of linking, interactivity, verification, transparency, and Web advertising, as well as the effects of convergence on newsrooms. It also addresses the question of who is a journalist and what is journalism in an age when anyone can be a publisher. Each chapter includes a complex case study that promotes critical thinking and classroom discussion about how to apply the ethical issues covered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much needed book in a fast-changing area 26 Oct 2007
Format:Hardcover
On April 16, 2007, a 23-year-old man shot and killed 32 people at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. As the shootings were taking place students reported what was taking place on blogs, mobile phones, instant messaging, Flickr, Wikipedia, and social networks.

As they did so, journalists started arriving in search of information and reaction. Some "lurked", taking what they found and publishing it elsewhere; others engaged in "digital doorstepping" - asking students for their experiences and feelings, or if they'd be willing to be interviewed on camera.

While traditional journalists saw the material as being `in the public domain', many students reacted angrily to the invasion of what they saw as `their' space. It was an example of worlds colliding, highlighting the new ethical challenges facing journalists as new media technologies enabled the distinction between public and private, and between publisher and audience, to collapse.

In this context, Friend and Singer's book on the ethics of online journalism is hugely welcome.

Over eight chapters Friend and Singer attempt to summarise how journalism ethics are being changed by the ways new media technologies are being used. They begin by highlighting the culturally-specific and indeed technologically-influenced nature of ethics - how that the emergence of objectivity as an idea, for instance, was derived in part from the development of the telegraph, while new media technologies are reshaping these ethics once again.

They then look at questions around `Who is a journalist?' and whether they should have different rights to non-journalists, before looking at sourcing practices - the importance of credibility, transparency, and the ethics of lurking.
