Journalism Ethics Packet Questions

Ethics Review:

After reading pages 267-268 and 274-280 of the Chapter 10: Ethics Packet, answer these questions. Please turn them in for credit.

  1. What does it mean that “National Security does not rest on National Ignorance”? This quote is from Katherine Graham (Page 269).
  2. When a journalist uses Deceit, what are they obligated to do?
  3. What do you think about the idea of running Sensational photos like the ones of the drowned boy or the Bud Dwyer? Should journalist run pictures of human suffering? If so, how? If not, why not?
  4. Where do you draw the line between Sensational and Newsworthy?
  5. How can journalists be corrupted by Conflicts of Interests? Do you think that these are appropriate or too limiting?
