About this title

Synopsis:

This edition updates the reader on the declining state of ethics in American journalism. It evaluates the rights and wrongs of journalistic behaviour and suggests ways journalists should improve their ethics. The book argues for greater compassion in dealing with human situations in the news.

From the Back Cover:

The reputation of journalists is continually being questioned. Nearly every public opinion poll shows that people have lost respect for journalists and lost faith in the news media. In this fully updated and expanded 5th edition of Groping for Ethics in Journalism, author Ron F. Smith offers solutions for the ethical dilemmas facing journalists. Smith has added more photos, case studies, and student assignments to make this timeless standard even more compelling.

Journalism students, scholars, faculty and professionals will profit immensely from the tough issues this text addresses. An all-new philosophy of ethics chapter has been added, examining the teachings of classical and modern philosophy and their influence on ethical conduct today.

Chapter-ending “Improving the Profession” discussions address how journalists can ask tough questions yet show compassion. Issues covered in this edition come from all areas of the media print, broadcast, and Internet.

Expanded discussion in this edition covers:

  • Critics of the media
  • Journalism and truth in the postmodern era
  • Photo manipulation and ethics
  • Undercover reporting
  • The climate of corporate news ownership

Groping for Ethics in Journalism, 5th Edition maintains this book’s standing as the finest foundation text for studying journalism ethics
