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.
Journalistic Ethics has been added to our collection, 1,700 Free Online Courses from Top Universities.
