Rolling Stone recently published an article by actor and activist Sean Penn about his interactions with noted drug kingpin “El Chapo”, which occurred while El Chapo was on the run from authorities. This article has sparked a debate on journalistic ethics. Northeastern’s John Wihbey, assistant professor of Journalism and New Media and core faculty at NULab, answers a series of questions on the ethical conduct of Penn and Rolling Stone in Northeastern News’ “3Qs” series.
