Should Journalists Make Kickstarter Donations? We Ask Randy Cohen, The (Original) Ethicist and Kickstarter User


So we wrote to Cohen to ask a tangentially related Question of Ethics. Specifically, what are the journalistic ethics of contributing to Kickstarter projects? Can journalists contribute at all or just in areas they don’t cover? A real arts-related example: Silent Barn, a Queens loftspace adored for its DIY shows, recently crowdsourced funding after a robbery; if a music journalist who’d likely review a show there at some point contributed out of love for the venue, would that be a clear conflict of interest?

"I think you’ve got the ethics of journalism issue just right: You can contribute to any worthy cause as long as it’s not something you cover," Cohen told us over e-mail. "I think that your music journalist should err on the pristine side and not contribute to this venue. There is no shortage of good to be done in the world, and [he/she’d] best do [his/hers] elsewhere."

It’s almost like gaming journalists have no standards or ethics and resort to crying and tantrums when people point it out.

Fun fact: I really don’t care if you use these tumblr posts on tesg or not. Place is shit. But if you legit want shit from me that may have been taken down, just ask. If it’s something that may need a direct download, I’ll keep your identity private if you’re embarrassed.
