Abstract:
As both journalism and the film industry have evolved, so has the portrayal of journalism ethics on television. Past research depicts an evolution in journalism film ethics, where the film industry has portrayed journalists as both good guys and bad guys. Advances in the film industry and narrative storytelling have allowed for more complicated plots to be featured on dramatic television shows which lends itself to fostering more discussion on a larger variety of ethical dilemmas with a larger variety of outcomes.
