Making ethics accessible and applicable to media practice, Media Ethics: Key Principles for Responsible Practice explains key ethical principles and their application in print and broadcast journalism, public relations, advertising, marketing, and digital media. Unlike application-oriented case books, this text sets forth the philosophical underpinnings of key principles and explains how each should guide responsible media behavior. Author Patrick Lee Plaisance synthesizes classical and contemporary ethics in an accessible way to help students ask the right questions and develop their critical reasoning skills, both as media consumers and media professionals of the future. The revised and expanded second edition includes new examples and case studies throughout, expanded coverage of digital media, and two new chapters distinguishing the three major frameworks of media ethics and exploring media ethics across new media platforms including blogs, new forms of digital journalism, and social networking sites.
