9/9/08: Media Ethics and the Campaign Trail

Sarah Palin

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Sarah Palin's candidacy for Republican vice president has again raised questions of the media's role and behavior this election season. Should a candidate's personal life be off-limits or do reporters have an obligation to introduce politicians to the voting public? How does praise or criticism of the media become part of a campaign strategy? Doug is joined by Brooke Gladstone of On the Media, NPR's David Folkenflik and Kelly McBride of the Poynter Institute's Ethics Group.
