In search of media ethics

The difficult questions of truth, objectivity and ethics in news was our subject today. I inflicted a piece of Melanie Phillips at her most vicious and insinuating on the kids, but also these clips from Drop the Dead Donkey, leading into a discussion of fact, deeper truths, news' media's tendency towards news that lends itself to simple emotions and gripping stories - culminating in (hopefully) destroying any faith they may have in the notion of objective truth.
