Hello Ethics,

It seems like only 45 minutes ago that I saw you! I hope our discussion today on moving from observing to participating in a news situation gave you some context on the question: do your story first, if possible; intervene if lives are in danger, etc. My sense is that this is a very personal decision, so discussion—even small group discussion—may not be as valuable as it is in other areas. But it’s helpful, I think, to raise questions that might guide your thinking. And I hope that’s what we did today—even without our circle.

On Tuesday: I’ll see you at Jose Antonio Vargas’s talk at 4 Tuesday in the Student Union Ballroom. He’s a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who now focuses on immigration. Here is more background.

On Thursday, please bring to class a one-page summary of your sense of Vargas’s ethics, using evidence from his talk. We’ll also discuss Privacy and start on Photojournalism if there’s time.

Have a great weekend!
