Abstract:

"Speech, Media, and Ethics: The Limits of Free Expression is an interdisciplinary work that employs ethics, liberal philosophy, and legal and media studies to outline boundaries to freedom of expression and freedom of the press. Moral principles are applied to analyse practical questions that deal with free expression and its limits. Part One deals with recent controversies over freedom of expression. It addresses the right to demonstrate, the right to picket the private homes of public officials, and the right to compete in elections, suggesting boundaries to these basic rights. Part Two focuses on freedom of communications and media ethics, a very timely concern in the Western world. It considers the concept of 'the public's right to know' and its ethical constraints.

The essays analyse some of the basic principles, and fallacies, of the media, offering ethical limits on their work while emphasizing that these limits should be self-imposed rather than imposed from above by the legislature or the courts."--BOOK JACKET.
