As journalism has moved online, the traditional journalism ethics dilemmas around fairness, accuracy, and inclusivity have become more complicated.
With its focus on digital journalism ethics, the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics is exploring those complexities: In a world of bloggers and online infotainment, who is a journalist? How can journalism harness the diversity of online voices to provide a richer view of the world? How can serious journalism set itself apart in the digital realm? Working with leading editors and publishers, we are exploring these questions and developing technological tools to establish trustworthiness online.
