It considers the potentially beneficial uses of media practice for humanity, addressing questions of inclusivity and diversity and specialist topics that are absent from other texts.

Topics discussed include: ethical theories; social scientific theories; the search for a responsible practice; internationalisation of the media; the ethics of interviewing; politicians, power and spin; media, minorities and gender; arts, sports and travel; ethics and images; changing technologies; and codes and principles. Features * The only book to consider media ethics in the context of social change * Provides current examples of British and international media practice, theory, problem-solving exercises, workshop simulations and case studies * Includes original cartoons, rare photographs of great 'muckrakers', an annotated list of relevant films, and a full bibliography and index.
