Media Ethics Elsewhere

Interesting to read about the concept of media ethics in other countries. Here’s a link to a story about the president of the state of Kerala in India speaking at the 125-year celebration of a popular daily newspaper.–Media-must-maintain-ethics-Mukherjee-.html

“Media Must Maintain Ethics: Mukherjee”

Here’s a link to another story — a blog post, actually — about media ethics in another humungous nation, China.

“Chinese Media Ethics Wanting: Solution Found”  By Dan Harris, Feb. 1, 2007

And a link to a more recent account by William A. Babcock, who taught the subject along with other basic Western-style reporting  for a semester at a Beijing university.

“Teaching Media Ethics — West Meets East”

Babcock is bringing his experience to an audience in Illinois, thanks to the American Association of University Women in Carbondale. (Full disclosure, I am an AAUW member in Milwaukee.)

“Presentation to focus on China’s media ethics”

Having living in the Republic of China (commonly known as Taiwan), way back in a previous life and having included media ethics in my international consulting, which included working with the judiciary and journalists in Eastern European countries and in Indonesia, I am sorely tempted to try to attend Prof. Babcock’s talk — and would were it not a six-hour-plus drive and that I were not already committed to hang loose at home to help a daughter with her child care and transportation needs.

Sometimes life must prevail.
