Media ethics is a branch of ethics referring specifically to the morality of media including journalism, the arts, entertainment, and advertising. It covers topics like the what should be the duty of media, the goals of media, and when the media should be protected as free speech or censored for public safety.


My general beliefs are for media to be censored as little as possible while having their goals as transparent as possible. Thus, even media whose goal is to actively spread disinformation shouldn't be censored provided its goal is transparently open to the public. I only think that media outlets should be censored or punished for lying when they lie about the fact that they're lying.
