The New Ethics of Journalism: No Ethics. New YT Magazine Is Out!

Since the ‘60s, we have been living in the age of the “new journalism”, the founder of which was the American, Hunter Thompson. His ideas were based on the assertion that journalistic objectivity was a myth. 

The Ethics of Modern Journalism

“New journalists” take the view that fabricated facts are better than the truth which is providing a new ethics of journalism. And along with further technological development has come a more advanced offshoot of this popular trend – “gonzo journalism”.

It is an even more comprehensive and subjective narrative style, where a journalist appears as an active participant in the described events, using his own experiences and emotions to give the “right” tilt to the events.

Quotes, sarcasm, humor, exaggerations, and foul language are the indispensable features of such a style.

The editorial staff of our magazine has conducted research on the state of modern journalism and ethics, the results of which are published as the main topic of this issue.
