Routledge is proud to produce some of the most acclaimed, cutting-edge scholarship available in Media & Culture, and we're pleased to highlight the following positive reviews from CHOICE.
"The essays in this collection cover best practices in an era of networked, global journalism; the role of transparency in relation to other journalistic values; verification practices for social media; principles of linking; curation and aggregation; live blogging and tweeting; corrections and "unpublishing"; citizen collaboration; multimedia journalism; data journalism; and issues related to journalists' public and private selves. The essays are tightly integrated through attention to three key ethical frameworks: duty, virtue, and care.
