    i'm doing some legal research for my summer job in law school and i need to find a book about journalism ethics. there are dozens of books out there on the subject so finding one is not a problem.

    even though i was a journalist, i never spent a day in journalism school, so i'm wondering if any SportsJournalists.commers can tell me if there are one or two books considered the seminal works on media ethics.

  2. I don't remember my textbook and this is OT...but my J-school housed print, broadcast, PR and advertising. I took media ethics from a advertising professor. I still can't believe that happened.

    Mass Media Law by Don R. Pember. A lot of stuff in this that may or may not help.
  4. Groping for Ethics in Journalism:
    By Ron F. Smith

    That book is an awesome read.
