Law on Mass Media and Communication 7th Exercise “Protected Aspects” of Privacy. The Newsworthiness Standard. Legitimate Public Interest Standard. Deadline extended to Thursday, Nov. 14, 2019 at 5pm.
Enumerate at least five “protected aspects” of an individual’s privacy (private aspects of an individual’s life) that cannot be the subject of publication/ cannot be publicly disclosed unless they involve public interest and are newsworthy (or the person has waived privacy by volunteering the information ) ; then, submit a sample of a news feature/ news report/ feature report/ op-ed/ (time frame: media exposure/ media coverage from August 1, 2019 to November 14, 2019) to illustrate when such an aspect of a public person’s life has become of public interest and therefore can be published or publicly disclosed.
BONUS: For an additional 5pts, and in a separate post marked as “Explainer”, explain why the subject matter in the sample you chose has become of public interest or is newsworthy by: 1)using the categories discussed in class and 2)applying the standards established by jurisprudence. (a general explanation will not merit any points).
The deadline for both is on Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 5pm. As usual, this is on a “first-submitted-first-credited” method ( time frame : media coverage from Aug. 1, 2019 to Nov. 14, 2049) : Class members are not allowed to copy the sample or topic that has been submitted by their classmate.
