This Workshop for Ethics in Business luncheon will explore the codes of online conduct that are emerging as new media gains more influence in political and business affairs. Going beyond commonsense ethical codes on the Internet, such as honesty, accuracy, and transparency, this panel will examine the relationship between money, the media, and the health of American democracy. What role does private money play in influencing elections and how does this influence play out in the blogosphere? How is the media performing as a watchdog for our political system? What companies and media organizations are advancing a more ethical internet society?

Steven C. Clemons, publisher of The Washington Note, will speak on political blogging, blogging ethics, and money in politics. PBS Ombudsman Michael Getler will discuss standards of editorial integrity in old and new media. Rita J. King of Dancing Ink Productions will talk about the evolving ethics of virtual worlds and their use in public diplomacy. Alex Koppelman of will discuss the ethical challenges in political blogging, focusing on the potential pitfalls that the increasing influence of the blogosphere presents to bloggers. New York University Professor of Journalism Jay Rosen will draw on his experience as a press critic and innovator of new media projects.

This event is cosponsored by Booz Allen Hamilton’s strategy+business magazine and the NYU Center for Global Affairs, and is part of the Ethical Blogger Project.

The luncheon cost is $50 (fee can be waived for students, academics, and nonprofit professionals). Please send your RSVP and payment info to: [email protected]
