LEVAN COFFEEHOUSE CONVERSATION ON PRACTICAL ETHICS- MESSENGER OR MENACE: CAN MEDIA STILL ACT RESPONSIBLY?
Come share your opinions about ethical questions that matter. Faculty, staff, and undergraduate and graduate students from every part of our USC community are encouraged to come to Ground Zero Café and talk about the ethical questions of the day. Free lunch and open dialogue.
In the not-too-distant past, there was a fairly clear line separating journalists from mere consumers of media. With the recent proliferation of media outlets, magnified by the rise of consumer-generated and disseminated “news,” the distinction between reporter and consumer has been blurred, if not entirely obliterated. We are all members of the media. Should we embrace a perfectly free “marketplace of ideas” totally unconstrained by moral values of honesty, fairness and concern for the welfare of others? Or is an entirely new ethical standard needed?
