Ethics in a vacuum.

"We are moral, legal, and unconstrained."

Direct quote or paraphrase, that seems to be one of those two-out-of-three things, rather like faster, better, cheaper. A legal framework imposes constraints. A moral framework imposes constraints.

Given the context, I am somehow reminded of Jane Butzner Jacobs' Guardian ethic and Corporate ethic. I'm trying out the concept of the Media ethic, and having some trouble imagining it. I think that's because the media is so unconstrained.
