This special issue shows that "old ethics" don't always provide ready answers to problems raised by new technology. Exploring the perplexing topic of ethics in new media, this special issue:
*examines the ethics of the highly controversial 1998 Cincinnati Enquirer exposé of Chiquita Brands International;
*reports on a pilot project involving online journalists and online journalism graduate students;
*investigates the extent to which e-mail and listservs are--and could be--effective fora for journalists interested in exploring matters of ethics; and
*provides a useful annotated webliography of information resources.
