Review

“The book is superb – the definitive work on journalism ethics and practices. It should be a basic text in every school of journalism.”
- Gene Roberts, former executive editor of The Philadelphia Inquirer, former managing editor of The New York Times, former professor, University of Maryland College of Journalism

The Ethical Journalist is like GPS for sound decision-making.”
- Jim Naughton, President Emeritus of the Poynter Institute of Media Studies

“Gene Foreman practiced and championed high ethical standards in newsrooms for decades. He’s now written a clear, compelling text on journalism ethics. It’s practical, principled and powerful.”
- Robert M. Steele, Director of The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics, DePauw University

“Gene Foreman, a great editor and teacher, has produced a comprehensive – yet very easy to read and use – guide to journalistic values and ethics that shows journalists and students how to make responsible decisions about news in print and cyberspace. An essential road map for a rapidly changing journalistic landscape.”
- Leonard Downie, Weil Family Professor of Journalism at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Arizona State University, and former editor, The Washington Post

“...Readers’ tendency to oversimplify ethical method will be challenged by Gene Foreman’s The Ethical Journalist, which I find more complex and engaging than other texts, and which will, therefore, become the first ethics text I can comfortably prescribe – for both graduate and undergraduate classes....The book’s tone is thoughtful but forthright, its style clear but engaging, its stance fair but unabashed. It’s obviously written by a practiced craftsman who is passionate about his work, and curious about its dilemmas.”
- Ivor Shapiro, chair, School of Journalism, Ryerson University, in a review in Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, Summer 2010

“At a time when the Internet has turned journalism inside out and blown up long-held traditions, the need for media ethics is even more critical. This is the book to help guide students and the rest of us through the revolution.”
- Alicia C. Shepard, former NPR Ombudsman

“I am blown away by how good this book is. It is practical, insightful and even-handed.”
- Tim McGuire, Frank Russell Professor of Journalism at Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Arizona State University, former editor of the Star Tribune in Minneapolis

"In a new book, written as a text for journalism students, former Philadelphia Inquirer managing editor Gene Foreman draws on half a century of journalism experience to chart a path through the thicket."
- Green Bay Press-Gazette, November 2009

"The book provides a foundation in applied ethics in journalism, and examines the subject areas where ethical questions most frequently arise. Many other real-life episodes are cited in the book's narrative to illustrate how journalists have dealt with ethical challenges."
- Penn State Live, August 2009

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Gene Roberts suggested I pick this book up. It's kept me up past midnight every night since, devouring its content. This is a wonderful reminder to journalists about why we do what we do and a great lesson to readers about why it should matter.

I wrote up something here, inspired by the book: [...]

Gene Foreman, now retired after a distinguished career as a newspaper editor, has produced a brilliant book that adds wisdom to the the ongoing public debate over journalistic ethics. It is brightly written and highly readable by anybody, not just journalists and the people they write about, but by anyone who cares about the role of the media in a democracy. Diogenes can rest. Here is an honest man!

It's a great book as far as content, but if I had known the publisher told not to include page numbers in the Kindle version, I would have bought the hard copy. The publisher has to know that students are using this for class and professors tend to assign page numbers, so I don't know what they were thinking. Very frustrating!
