Unattributed, 21st Century Information Fluency, Jul 13, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This was shared by on Google Reader and I'm displaying it here to make a point. And the point is this: why are we only focused on ethical use of the information? Have we been so brainwashed by the copyright lobby that we don't think of ethics anywhere else? Why would we not question whether the information has been ethically sourced, ethically authored and ethically shared? The News of the World scandal should make it clear to us that some (in my view, most) of our news agencies are unethical. Should we be passing along any information from Murdoch's empire (which includes Fox News and the always-biased Wall Street Journal)? In science, we do not use research results unless we know the results have been obtained ethically. The same should apply to our news and other sources of information.
