JOURNALISM AND ETHICS ASSESSMENT

JOURNALISM AND ETHICS ASSESSMENT
Order Description
Find a recent news story or feature on a local or national news site (this can be a newspaper, broadcaster or online-only site) in which ethical issues are raised.

In 500 words, discuss the various ethical issues involved in your chosen story, how the journalist appears to have dealt with them, and how they might have been dealt with differently, for better or worse. You should draw on the material covered in the Law and Ethics lecture and the two Ethics workshops, and consider established ethical guidelines such as the Ipso code.

As with the Law case study, you MUST include a printed copy of the original story and feature when you submit your assignment [plus a hyperlink if available]. Failure to do so will mean you fail the assignment.
