Unsustainable journalism

From the development of print to the era of mobile telephony, the media technologies used by writers and publishers have drawn upon, created, and emitted dangerous substances, generating multi-generational risks for ecosystems and employees alike. Many of these risks are invisible to journalism, because they are separated from the labor process that disseminates news output in newsrooms and other reporting sites, or they appear at different stages of the life cycle of these technologies. Journalism needs a new set of ethics to deal with this ecological crisis.
