Description
For undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Journalism and Media Studies.

Journalism Ethics at Work helps students identify their own ethical value system so that they can act with confidence, in the newsroom or in the field. It draws on the experiences of journalists (the good and the bad alike) and shows how to negotiate the minefield that is ethical journalism.

Good journalism is more than a state of mind - it also involves balancing multiple responsibilities. Journalism Ethics at Work is a readable text and journalism students and early career journalists will find it an exciting and interesting book.
