Research: “The Concept of Ethics and the Production of Journalism in Technological Times” (Portuguese)
Technology is an ally for investigative reporting during procedures of verifying information. But the use of technology raises discussions about the ethical dimension of these procedures . Take, for example, the last update of the Code of Ethics of the Brazilian Journalists, which occurred in 2007 and was motivated by the specific discussion on the use of hidden cameras as an artifact in journalistic investigation. Could the use of new technologies in the production process of journalism influence the concept of ethics of journalists? To try to answer this question, we interviewed 15 professional journalists operating in the labor market of Fortaleza.
