CM/JR 316 - Truth Telling: Ethical Journalism in the Age of Instant Media

This course explores the foundations of professional journalism, and critically examines – through practical trial – the bases of the ethical code that developed out of the practice of the journalistic profession in the age of print, and undergirded the best journalism through the mass media age. The course will focus on developments in communications technology and the effects these have had on the culture, asking whether journalism as it has traditionally been understood and practiced is still possible within the contemporary culture and environment of digital media. Spanish and International News will be considered for examination and analysis through the new independent media in digital platforms as a response to traditional Mainstream Media.
