Today's lesson will be a pretty brief one. After seeing how you went in the trial, I thought you would be really helped by a resource that draws out the common social and ethical issues (both positive and negative) that apply to many different situations - as well as some that relate to specific processes.

Now, have a read of this:
Choppergate: News director resigns and Nine fires three journalists for faking live crosses (original article)

And then complete the following tasks:
  1. Describe as many social and ethical issues related to this situation as you can.
  2. Justify the original decision to fake the live cross.
  3. Analyse Nine News' response to the incident.
