Show and tell: the ethical question - 7 February 2014

Journalistically speaking, I should come clean with the departments and tell them that they’re being watched, that this correspondence isn’t just about the content, but on how they respond (if at all!). I want to test how they’d respond to an ordinary member of the public, or a lowly civil society organisation, not how they’d respond to a media voice like a newspaper. The idea is to see how they’ll respond when they don’t know they’re being watched.
