Ethics Case Studies Collection Continues to Grow

Looking for free, concise, and current ethics case studies?

The Media Ethics Initiative at the University of Texas, Austin (reported on previously), directed by Scott Stroud, has a new website and new case studies on topics such as free speech and cancel culture, the ethics of investigative journalism, presidential tweeting, lobbying, AI, race and representation in Game of Thrones,  the ethics of documentary film, the ethics of art, and more. Here’s a case about something your students may be currently thinking about: TikTok users doxing other users who violate pandemic recommendations.

You can check out the whole collection here.
