Comparative International Media Ethics: In Search of Universals.
Cooper, Thomas W.
This paper reviews the major studies of international and national approaches to media ethics and describes the various academic and global contexts for international media ethics study. It suggests methodology for helpful, if embryonic, comparison and for accurate pattern recognition. The paper explores the question of whether there are universals--common ethical values or guidelines--in national and cultural approaches to media ethics, and hypothesizes three such universals based upon areas of common ground within available media ethics codes, guidelines, and similar documents. Five diagrams and 61 notes are included; a bibliography of 12 articles and 22 books is attached. (Author/SR)
