News consumers made cynical by sensationalist banners—“AMERICA STRIKES BACK,” “THE TERROR OF ANTHRAX”—and lurid leads might be surprised to learn that in 1690, the newspaper Publick Occurrences gossiped about the sexual indiscretions of French royalty or seasoned the story of missing children by adding that “barbarous Indians were lurking about” before the disappearance. Surprising, too, might be the media’s steady adherence to, if continual tugging at, its philosophical and ethical moorings. These 39 essays, written and edited by the nation’s leading professors of journalism, cover the theory and practice of print, radio, and TV news reporting. Politics and partisanship, press and the government, gender and the press corps, presidential coverage, war reportage, technology and news gathering, sensationalism: each subject is treated individually. Appropriate for interested lay persons, students, professors and reporters. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

Michael Haller arbeitet die Merkmale der Reportage heraus und grenzt sie ab gegenüber anderen journalistischen Darstellungsformen, vor allem dem Feature. Anhand zahlreicher Beispiele führt er dann ins Handwerk des Reporters ein: Er erläutert die Themenfindung, die Materialbeschaffung am Ort, das Befragen der Akteure. Und er zeigt, wie man gute und lebendige Texte schreibt. Als Gastautoren geben renommierte Reporter, wie Cordt Schnibben, Peter Matthias Gaede und Jürgen Leinemann Einblicke in ihre Schreibpraxis. Sie schildern, wie sie Themen veranschaulichen, wie sie Beobachtungen authentisch darstellen und Sprache sinnlich machen.

Journalism, Ethics and Society provides a comprehensive overview and critical analysis of debates within media ethics in relation to the purpose of news and journalism for society. It assesses how the meaning of news and journalism is central to a discourse in ethics and further evaluates the continuing role of liberalism in helping to define both theory and practice. Its timely and topical analysis focuses on two of the most central concepts within media ethics and journalistic practice: the US based Public Journalism 'movement' and European Union media policies. It provides new ways of thinking about media ethics and will be of interest to students and researchers working within the field of media, cultural studies and journalism, as well as scholars of philosophy.
