Controversies in media ethics
Longman, 1999 - Business & Economics - 316 pages
Uniquely arranged as a series of debates, Controversies in Media Ethics, 2/e, offers alternate perspectives on a wide range of media ethics issues. In each chapter, two opposing viewpoints are presented, followed by a commentary by John Merrill. These chapter-ending perspectives identify middle ground between the widely differing perspectives presented and encourage students to think critically about important issues. Provocative topics, such as privacy, violence and pornography, and ethics in advertising provide students with lively and interesting examples of the complex traditional and emerging problems of media ethics.
