The School of Journalism at Southern Illinois University Carbondale hosted a seminar on April 12 to focus on journalism ethics and First Amendment issues, funded by a grant from Liberty Tree.

The panel discussion asked “Are the traditional media tools of accountability – ombudsmen, newsroom ethics codes, journalism reviews, news councils and public journalism – able to keep up with the mushrooming ethical issues of a Twitter, Facebook, WikiLeaks world?”

The second session's panel, reacting to the first session, was comprised of Gene Policinski, executive director of the First Amendment Center, David Yepsen, director of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute, Carolyn Kingcade, a journalism professor and former Reader's Advocate at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Aaron S. Veenstra, professor of new media, Laura Hlavach, professor of communications law, and William H. Freivogel, director of the SIUC School of Journalism.
