The New Ethics of Journalism: A Guide for the 21st Century by Kelly McBride and Tom Rosenstiel provides an authoritative and practical book on Poynter's "green light" process in ethical decision making for journalists and journalism students. The work will include chapters on the roles and responsibilities of journalists (e.g., values, newsroom culture, decision making models), the landscape (e.g., owners, audiences, economics, citizens), and pressure points (e.g., accuracy, conflicts of interest, bias, and coverage of vulnerable people). In addition, the work will include a variety of case studies: "raw," workshop style, deconstructed, and in dialogue.
