Journalism and Ethics--BBC journalists sneak in North Korea as LSE students

Three BBC journalists, including panorama reporter John Sweeney, spent 8 days in North Korea, pretending to be LSE (London School of Economics) students.

The LSE students' union is protesting that the BBC has put the students in a dangerous position, as North Korea could have detained them had the (N.Korea) government found out.

This incident illustrates an example of journalism and ethics.

#Is it okay to film a country for a broadcasting purpose even if the country is an interesting "rogue regime?"
#Using LSE students as "human shield"?
