UPDATED. Law on Mass Media and Communication 9th and Final Exercise with Deadline on Wednesday Dec. 4 at 5pm

 Based on the class discussion on the rights of private individuals as limit to the right to freedom of the press or the right to free speech, and the discussion on laws on public order as limit to the right to freedom of the press or the right to free speech, submit an illustration of any one of the following:

    Either : A. The concept of the right to privacy of private individuals as a limit to freedom of expression (1.Constitutional protection of right to privacy as against the State; 2.Protection of the right to privacy under the Civil Code; 3.Protection of the right to privacy under special criminal laws; 4.Protection of the right to privacy as enunciated by the Supreme Court (jurisprudence) ) (time frame: news reports from 2018 to 2019)

UPDATE: BONUS for five points which can be availed of for any option: For an additional five points on reporting, the right to privacy (and listening and reading comprehension) :
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 varying general reports of depression). 
(a sample, from naomiczar of the Ethics class: “…This statement (the second), in comparison to the prior statement, significantly limits the scope of the data from which the conclusion was based; and thus offers a more streamlined and careful conclusion and consequently, implications that can be derived.

     “It is pertinent to offer all possible explanations and analyses for the data because it decreases the probability of the data being misinterpreted and it can also offer different perspectives about the data. This will guide us to consider various interpretations and consequently make valid and informed decisions.”)


or

      B. The law on inciting to sedition or inciting to rebellion  as used or threatened to be used by the State or public officials (time frame: news reports from 2018 to 2019).

        (the bonus can be availed of whatever option the class member takes).

      The deadline is on Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2019 at 5pm.
