The Moral Media examines the ethical thinking of journalists in a professional environment.

Book Excerpt: 
". . .Members of Investigative Reporters and Editors, arguably the journalism profession's most prestigious professional organization and a group whose ethical decision making has been examined using the case study approach, were surveyed and then interviewed in depth about deception as professionals understand it. The results of that work present both some fine-grained thinking about this issue and a cogent analysis of the external influences that may - and we believe do - impinge on ethical thinking. . ."
