Defining Philosophical Constructs of Ethical Journalism in a Market Economy.
Reppert, James E.
This paper considers the teaching of journalism ethics and suggests readings to help students absorb the discipline and produce an original research paper. The paper also assists students' professional goals upon graduation. Two publications that examine journalistic ethics, "The Virtuous Journalist" (Stephen Klaidman and Tom L. Beauchamp) and "Committed Journalism" (Edmund B. Lambeth) are critically evaluated. It states that "The Virtuous Journalist" explores principles of journalistic morality and examines many relevant ethical areas, including serving the public, escaping manipulation and avoiding harm. The paper explains that in "Committed Journalism", a normative standard of journalism ethics is devised. It weighs the usefulness of both books to inform students and emphasizes that basic underpinnings of professional conduct and research methodology can be obtained by perusing the instructional analyses of "The Virtuous Journalist" and "Committed Journalism." Contains 2 references. (NKA)
