Summary

Uniquely arranged as a series of debates, Controversies in Media Ethics, 2/e, offers alternate perspectives on a wide range of media ethics issues. In each chapter, two opposing viewpoints are presented, followed by a commentary by John Merrill. These chapter-ending perspectives identify middle ground between the widely differing perspectives presented and encourage students to think critically about important issues. Provocative topics, such as privacy, violence and pornography, and ethics in advertising provide students with lively and interesting examples of the complex traditional and emerging problems of media ethics.

Features

  • Fully updated examples, include discussions of the President Clinton/ Paula Jones trial, the media's handling of Princess Diana's death, and O. J. Simpson's civil trial.
  • A chapter on Conflicts of Interest (chapter 14) shows the ethical struggles in the media and its practices.
  • An updated bibliography at end of the text has been expanded to include more general media ethics issues.
  • A mini-chapter (part of chapter 15) includes a new discussion of deception and reporting in the media.
  • Each chapter ends with a commentary by John Merrill that encourages students to find common ground between differing perspectives.
  • A beginning overview of general ethical principles (before chapter 1), written by John Merrill, gives students a basis for understanding issues presented in the text.
  • A list of other sources is provided at the end of each chapter for students who want more information on a certain subject.
