Question and answer
Q: 3. What are the social responsibilities of news media?
A: The media represent one of the most powerful ? yet least trusted and least accountable institutions ? in the world. The sector could become the most powerful institution on earth, yet accountability mechanisms are generally weak. [ Few media companies, for example, produce CSR or SD reports. But the media sector will come under growing scrutiny as its influence grows. Expect the spotlight to
pick up other parts of the media ecosystem, too, including advertising agencies, PR firms and lobbyists. That said, the media have a critical role to play in the transition towards sustainability. Media understanding ? and sustained intelligent coverage ? of the CSR and SD agendas is a necessary precondition for real progress ]

User: 4. What are important ethical and legal considerations in the online world?

Weegy: One of the fundamental principles of research ethics, beneficence, obligates researchers to maximize possible benefits from the research and minimize harms and risks to their subjects. [ Benefits can be defined as gain to society or science through contribution to the knowledge base, gain to the individual through improved well being, or empowerment of the individual by giving him or her a voice. Harms may include death and injury, psychological abuse, loss of privacy and public exposure and may not only affect individuals, but specific population subgroups as well. Over the years, guidelines and requirements such as informed consent and the protection of privacy and confidentiality have been developed and modified to reinforce this ethical principle in the physical world. As the Internet continues to offer researchers both a tool and a medium for research, there is a need to reexamine how the principle of beneficence and current guidelines and requirements translate into the virtual domain, and whether they provide an adequate foundation for protecting human subjects. Whether the benefits and risks in online research are less or more than what occurs in the physical world remains to be determined as research enters this new technological frontier. We raise the issues below simply to indicate the potential for risk in Internet studies that warrants assessment as this research proceeds. ]
