Global Media Ethics: Problems and Perspectives

Editat de Stephen J. A. Ward
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 22 Feb 2013
Global Media Ethics is a cross–cultural exploration of the conceptual and practical issues facing media ethics in a global world. Focusing on the ethical concepts, principles, and questions in an era of major change, this unique textbook explores the aims and norms that should guide the publication of stories that impact across borders, and which affect a globally–linked, pluralistic world.
Through case studies, analysis of emerging practices, and theoretical discussion, a team of leading journalism and communication experts investigate the impact of major global trends on responsible journalism and lead readers to better understand changes in media ethics. Chapters look at how these changes promote or inhibit responsible journalism, how such changes challenge existing standards, and how media ethics can develop to take account of global news media.  In light of the fact that media journalism is now, and will increasingly become, multi–media in format and global in its scope and influence, the book argues that global media impact entails global responsibilities: it is therefore critical that media ethics re–thinks its basic notions, standards, and practices from a more cosmopolitan perspective.

Recenzii

Global Media Ethics, which is, first and foremost, didactic, provides fodder to identify and discuss crucial issues that promise the growth of global media ethics.  These issues go beyond social scientific comparativism and philosophical moral realism.  They must be located within the tensions of philosophical particularism and ethical universalism.   (Journal of Mass Media Ethics, 1 January 2014)
"This excellent collection extends the emerging genre of global media ethics in several ways, but most prominently by underscoring that while the study of global media ethics is important, there is growing evidence there are few moral universals.  Summing Up: Highly recommended."  (Choice, 1 October  2013)
