Question description

Write a 700 word paper that contrasts ethically responsible and irresponsible news reporting.

Answer the following questions:

·What is journalism’s ethical responsibility to society?

·What ethical obligations do reporters have to their sources?

·Under what conditions is a journalist ethically obligated to maintain privacy?

Illustrate your response these questions with at least two examples: one example of ethically responsible reporting, and another example of ethically irresponsible reporting.

·Consider using contrasting examples of coverage of the same issue to highlight differences between journalistic practices that are ethically responsible and irresponsible. You may use case studies from any of the assigned chapters of Media Ethics, or you may conduct external research using popular news sources, issues, and coverage.

·Remember that this assignment asks you to compare different approaches to news reporting; sources that simply provide opinion or commentary should not be used as examples.

Reference at least two peer-reviewed articles.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
