Ethics and Wartime Self-Censorship: Precedents for a Utilitarian Model in the Digital Age

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper argues that official government and military censorship have become impossible in the digital age. It offers the World War II model of effective self-censorship by the press, including legal and ethical issues constraining publication decisions, as an example of how cooperation and trust can make the alternative of self-censorship possible. It also addresses the complications posed by the relatively new phenomenon of citizen journalists and the challenges they pose to would-be censors. Finally, it frames the discussion of self-censorship in wartime using a utilitarian model of journalism ethics.
