Journalistic Ethics: A Free Online Course from UCLA

Taught by Jim New­ton, edi­tor-at-large of the Los Ange­les Times, this UCLA course–Journalistic Ethics–offers an inten­sive exam­i­na­tion of eth­i­cal and pol­i­cy issues aris­ing from inter­ac­tion of media insti­tu­tions (print, film, broad­cast­ing, and new tech­nolo­gies) and soci­etal insti­tu­tions (Con­gress, fed­er­al agen­cies, courts, Pres­i­den­cy, schools, church­es, polit­i­cal action groups, adver­tis­ers, and audi­ences). The 14 lec­tures can all be streamed above, or here.
