Animal rights and media ethics in Australia: advocacy journalism?
conference contributionposted on 2013-01-01, 00:00 authored by Janine LittleJanine Little
This paper considers the role of animal rights-based Australian law in journalism studies and its connection to instruction of graduate students at a large university based in Victoria. Its case study examples illustrate and develop some of the discussions in journalism studies worldwide of the balance between ethical practice balanced against legal considerations, and whether advocacy and journalism can function together for the benefit of the public interest.
