A curated list of case studies and examples highlighting some of the key ethical considerations for sports journalism.
From the Telegraph’s expose of the hapless England manager Sam Allardyce to Andrew Jennings relentless pursuit of Sepp Blatter and FIFA, to Lance Armstrong, David Walsh and Paul Kimmage through to Ryan Giggs, The Sunday Herald, parliamentary privilege and Twitter, plus much more, there is plenty to analyse and discuss here.
This teaching and learning material is typically delivered on my level 4 module, The Sociology of Sport, to encourage students to think about the ethical dilemmas facing sports journalists.
The platform used to curate the list of case studies and examples is Wakelet.
