About the Authors
  • From reality TV's fascination with the ordinary, to the extraordinary world of amateur sex online, new media technologies and genres are confronting us with fresh ethical challenges that blur the boundaries between the producer and the consumer, the amateur and the professional, the fan and the corporate, the private and the public. Cash for comment, Murdoch v. the Rabbitohs, the wild west world of web journalism, advertising as entertainment – tackling these issues requires new ways of understanding media ethics. Using accessible case studies and provocative interviews with some of Australia's foremost media practitioners - including Margo Kingston's reflections on on-line media, John Safran on media pranksterism, Mike Carlton on the on-going issue of 'cash for comment' and Maxine McKew on the future of journalism - Remote Control is essential reading for anyone interested in the state of debate about media ethics in Australia.

    • • This book is packed with commentary by Australia's most prominent media commentators and practitioners including Graeme Turner, Margo Kingston, John Safran and Maxine McKew.• This is the first book to analyse and debate new media ethics in this country.• This book will be a must for all of us - media consumers and practitioners alike will all benefit from Remote Control.
