Hit by the Silver Bullet: When Journalists Consider Withholding Information on National Security Grounds

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



Abstract:

This study employs Kohlberg’s hierarchy of moral reasoning to analyze journalistic decision-making over whether to withhold information from the public on national security grounds. It considers cases since Sept. 11, 2001, in which a major American news outlet reported that the government requested it withhold information on such grounds. The study finds that journalists usually reported their decision at Kohlberg’s social-contract stage of reasoning, regardless of whether the information in question was published or withheld. Implications for the role of journalistic ethics in international affairs are discussed.
