Journalism ethics and standards comprise principles of ethics and of good practice as applicable to the specific challenges faced by professional journalists. Historically and currently, this subset of media ethics is widely known to journalists as their professional code of ethics or the canons of journalism. The relation of the mass media to contemporary popular culture is commonly conceived in terms of dissemination from the elite to the mass. The long term consequences of this are significant in conjunction with the continuing concentration of ownership and control of the media, leading to accusations of a media elite having a form of cultural dictatorship. The notion of freedom of expression is intimately linked to political debate and the concept of democracy. The norms on limiting freedom of expression mean that public debate may not be completely suppressed even in times of emergency. This book a real serious work so that it may prove itself useful for students, researchers, journalists and general readers of the topic.
