Books Info:

The Concise Encyclopedia of Ethics in Politics and the Media free pdf With spin often playing an exaggerated role in politics, it is sometimes difficult to understand legal and judicial issues apart from their presentations by the media. This collection of articles combines discussions of ethical issues within and about the news and entertainment industries with descriptions of similar issues in politics. In general, the volume explores the theme of freedom versus responsibility. It can therefore serve as a resource for the person interested in theories of justice and discrimination as well as the depiction of minorities in the media. It's that ability to separate one from the other, and then to think analytically about the specific question at issue, that lies at the heart of Ethics. The book includes 30 articles previously published in the Encyclopedia of Applied Ethics and three new articles, commissioned especially for this volume. Over half of the previously published articles include updated facts and bibliographic citations. New articles include Media Ethics, Overview, War Reporting, and Privacy vs. Public Right to Know.
