As a result of simultaneous developments, including the proliferation of opportu- nities for online feedback, the application of discourse ethics to journalism, and a greater emphasis on journalistic accountability, the time is ripe for revisiting opportunities that online mechanisms provide for holding journalists accountable to audiences.

It also explores the limits of such approaches in nations with different press models, such as the development model as practiced in China.
