Mari Fazio looks at how the press covers private individuals who have been thrust into the public limelight through, for example, natural disasters. Fazio addresses how journalists can report the news and still respect people’s privacy. Elizabeth Elward considers the long-standing debate in journalism on when, if ever, the press should identify victims of sexual assault. Elward explores the ethical issues involved, especially in light of today’s openness, and what might be the best course of action today.
