Stressing the cross-platform viability of basic ethical principles, this study features a wide selection of case studies penned by professional journalistsincluding several new additionsthat offer examples of thoughtful, powerful, and principled reporting. Cases where regrettable decisions have taught important lessons are also included, providing a new template for analyzing moral predicaments.
