"This is the first textbook to explicitly integrate both media law and ethics within one volume. A truly comprehensive overview, this text is a thoughtful introduction to media law principles and cases and the related ethical concerns relevant to the practice of professional communication. With special attention made to key cases and practices, authors Roy L. Moore and Michael D. Murray revisit the most timely and incendiary issues in modern American media. Exploring where the law ends and ethics begin, each chapter includes a discussion of the ethical dimensions of a specific legal topic. The Fourth Edition includes new legal cases and emerging issues in media law and ethics as well as revised subject and case indexes. In addition to a separate chapter devoted exclusively to media ethics by Michael Farrell, a new chapter on international and foreign law by Dr. Kyu Ho Youm has also been added. Resources on the companion website include updated PowerPoint presentations, an instructor manual, and a sample syllabus for instructors, and study guides, practice quizzes, and all seven of the book's original appendices for students. An excellent integration of both law and ethics, this is the ideal text for undergraduate and graduate courses in media law and ethics"--
