Harvard University's Michael Sandel has a great series of lectures on ethics available on iTunes University.

The course name is Justice and it's excellent. Check it out.

Yeah, there's some background story to this I'm not familiar with.

I wish they taught "History and Moral Philosophy" in High Schools.

Most of us love history, it's the morality of actions that confuses.

All Wikipedia has to say is that there's some connection between Poynter, the Steubenville High School rape case, and Kelly McBride's column about how the media reports on rape cases,  I don't know if that's what this is about or not.

Poynter is the group largely behind Politifact and has a lot of ties with the Tampa Bay Times.

Also the people who screwed over Jim Romenesko, who for years brought massive amounts of traffic to their site.

It's a site for ethics in journalism, so no wonder they had to take it down. That's like an ethics site for lawyers.

Is this "Truth and Trust" like reality and ethics, or is it "Truth and Trust" like "Fair and Balanced"?

It's a dog used for hunting game birds, but that's not important right now.

nytmare: Is this "Truth and Trust" like reality and ethics, or is it "Truth and Trust" like "Fair and Balanced"?


If it's anything like "The most transparent administration in history", then it's GOT to be farked.
