We should examine journalism ethics from broader views than just looking at the principles of justice and harm, says a recent article by Steven Knowlton of Dublin City University and J. Christopher McKinley.

Most of western ethics training is based on enlightment-era reason-based principles. In the research, news stories were studied also using moral principles of loyalty, authority, sanctity and liberty. The findings offer valuable insights for journalism education.

The article published in Journalism & Mass Communication Educator can be found here (abstract public).
