360 video journalism is less ethically fraught than “flat” or traditional video journalism.

That’s my stand and I’m sticking to it. But wait, you’re probably thinking…. Isn’t virtual reality immersive, manipulative and intense? Yes, it is all of those things. But flat video is like that too. We simply don’t question it the same way because the practice is more familiar.
