Ethics of Digital Journalism

Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2011

Are social media re-shaping news values? Is disclosure more realistic than objectivity? Is privacy possible? Yesterday, the Ethics Center co-sponsored the Executive Roundtable on Digital Journalism Ethics to explore these and other ethical issues for journalists working in "new media."

Participants included a high-level cross-section of executives, mid-level decision-makers, and trainers/educators.  After a keynote by Richard Gingras, head of news products for Google, attendees met in four working sessions to outline some of the key dilemmas facing reporters and news organizations in the digital world.

The conference was co-sponsored by the Online News Association and the Santa Clara University Department of Communication.
