UPDATED. Ethics 9th Media Monitor (the News Media 3) The Broadcast Code
The 9th Media Monitor is on the KBP Broadcast Code provisions, annotation, and discussion.
Class members are required to review pertinent broadcast media content (time frame August 2019-December 2019) (Fair, Foolish, or in a Fix: good practice, violation, or dilemma), and to post the evaluation here, either regular or bonus (but not both), using the provisions of the KBP Broadcast Code. Points will be awarded on a “first-posted-first-credited” basis, i.e., class members are not allowed to copy or base their work on another class member’s post.
Baseless rants will not merit any points – the commentary should use, cite, and quote the pertinent provisions of the KBP Broadcast Code.
The deadline is on Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2019 at 11:59pm. Late posts will not merit any points.
BONUS: A review of any broadcast media content covering the 2019 SEA Games or SEA Games preparation and related events, issues, and topics (time frame: November 2019-December 2019) using the provisions of the KBP Broadcast Code.
UPDATE. Additional BONUS for five points: On broadcasting statements and quotes accurately:
Question: Is there a difference in the following statements of conclusion based on data from clinics that there are more reported cases of depression:
a)Statement of conclusion most often made by researchers: “There are more actual cases of depression in the last five years compared to the years before that, according to hospital records. ”
b)Another statement of conclusion that’s not used: “There are more reports of actual cases of depression in the last five years compared to the years before that when they were probably not being reported, based on hospital records. ”
1.What is the difference, if any, between the two? Explain. 2.Which statement would be more accurate? 3.Are there other possible theorization / explanation for the data? Explain, then state why it is important to offer all possible explanations and analysis for the data (for five points).
(On the other hand, cases of suicides and suicide attempts may be a more accurate measure of the qualitative change in the phenomenon of depression in the last five years compared to years before that, and used as jumping point of the study, i.e. absent more accurate data, the data on the increase in suicide cases and suicide attempts may support the conclusion that there are more cases of depression in the last five years compared to the years before that — more quantifiable — rather than general reports of depression)
Happy National Heroes Day!
