Journalism Ethics

Ian Richards

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that in a world of global corporations and the globalization of the practice of journalism, journalism ethics has little choice but to become global. This is not straightforward for many reasons, not least because journalism is a culturally established practice that has developed in the particular historical circumstances of each country where it is practiced. However, ethics can be both universal and rooted in particular contexts, and it is possible to accommodate considerable differences. For going global to be effective, it will be necessary for the awareness and appreciation of journalism's primary values to extend beyond journalism practitioners.
