"As one of the main scriptwriters of the two internal BBC training sessions which were produced following the Hutton inquiry, I can heartily recommend this book."
- Peter Stewart, BBC Training Department


"Packed with illustrations of journalistic heroism and skulduggery... This is an engaging and useful reference book and should become essential reading for serious students of journalism and for those who practise it."
- Times Higher Education Supplement


"A must-read for all journalists - be they reporters, editors or bloggers. It is both a straightforward explanation of ethical dilemmas using real-life examples and a subtle commentary on the state of British journalism."
- British Journalism Review


"This engaging nd accessible book cannot fail to inspire those who want to be good journalists in every sense of the word."
- Journalism Practice

Everything that journalists do has ethical implications, and in this book Tony Harcup explores the range of issues likely to confront those studying journalism or training to become journalists. The starting point for this engaging and innovative book is that ethical journalism is good journalism.

Building on the reflective and questioning approach of the author's acclaimed Journalism: Principles and Practice, this book discusses journalists' personal anecdotes alongside relevant critical studies by academics. Original interviews include Andrew Gilligan on his meeting with weapons expert Dr David Kelly and Ryan Parry on being an undercover reporter in Buckingham Palace.

Informed by new research and the author's own experience within mainstream and alternative journalism, The Ethical Journalist addresses topics such as trust, the public interest, deception, news values, source relationships, crime reporting, regulation and the Hutton inquiry.

This exciting new title discusses ethics as fundamental rather than as a set of problems or an added extra, and it should become essential reading for everyone interested in journalism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'He offers dozens of stories, interviews with reporters, and historical references to bolster his idea that from reflective practitioners comes ethical journalism, and ethical journalism is good journalism... As a guide to applied ethics in international journalism, this collection of recent and historical cases provides grist for solid debate... Altogether The Ethical Journalist presents a glimpse at how British and other journalists grapple with the ethical demands of their employers, their audiences, and even their governments' -
Jan Leach
Journal of Mass Media Ethics.
