Drone journalism and professional media ethics imperative discourse


The emergence of drones in journalism has raised questions concerning use and implications, all against the backdrop of local and global professional media interpretation of ethics. Drone_journalism is fraught with dialectics around privacy, intrusion and professional ethics; due to drones' pervasiveness in newsgathering and ethical challenges for stakeholders. This study relies on PRISMA_framework and discourse_analysis to propose a new concept for the redefinition of media ethics for integration into drone journalism. This paper thus presents the relevance of rethinking media interpretation of ethics through a transformed understanding of privacy in the face of drone technology; in the interest of the human person's sanctity. Include at least one finding of the paper, then what the paper concludes.
