ETHICS IN MILITARY MEDIA RELATIONS
Ditchey II, Robert Louis
McCabe, Douglas M
This paper examines the "Ethics in Military Media Relations"--specifically the ethical concepts and principles at work in press operations supporting Department of Defense policy to make timely and accurate information about national security and defense strategy available to the public through news media. The focus is on the clash of professional ethics from the military and journalistic viewpoints, and the application of media ground rules to reach ethical outcomes while protecting national security interests. This paper uses real-world examples to contextualize split duties and loyalties of Public Affairs and Media professionals.
