Does the media have a “duty of care”? | David Puttnam

Bad journalism, with its cynical storytelling, damages democracy; at best, disengaging citizens from active politics and, at worst, leaving them haplessly misinformed. With an understated and clear voice, Lord David Puttnam calls on us to challenge a culture of negligence by reconsidering our notions about how to balance the freedom of expression (and the freedom to unscrupulously chase profit) with the press's moral imperative to serve democracy.

In this thoughtful talk, David Puttnam asks a big question about the media: Does it have a moral imperative to create informed citizens, to support democracy? His solution for ensuring media responsibility is bold, and you might not agree. But it's certainly a question worth asking.
