Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
According to recent surveys, opinion polls rank journalists below politicians in public trust, and over half of the U.S. population does not believe that news reports are accurate. Keeble (journalism, City Univ., London) ties this crisis of confidence to the complex ethical dilemmas confronting contemporary media workers. In this book, he presents ethical challenges as questions with a wide range of potential responses. Most chapter subsection headings are phrased as questions, such as "Should it be possible for journalists to pay sources?" or "When a government wages war, should journalists automatically give it their support?" Chapters on sourcing problems, sleaze coverage, the tabloidization of the news, racism, the representation of diverse groups, and war reporting are included. Many of the examples used to illustrate the discussion are drawn from British journalism and may be unfamiliar to American readers. Intended for journalism students and professionals, this book is appropriate for academic collections. Judy Solberg, George Washington Univ. Lib., Washington, DC Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
