Please find one defamation case from a NON-US Common Law jurisdiction* that is making headlines in the past few weeks or months. (Nothing over 2 months old). Your journal entry should:
1. Explain the case;
2. Apply the DIP principles to the case. Here is an example (this is not from a real case):
In this action, the Plaintiff, Mr. Johnoman Bellen is suing Fair Daily Newspapers Ltd for defamation based on an article they wrote entitled “Bellen’s Bad for Business”. In this article, Mr. Bellen, a world famous master dance instructor, was accused of charging his clients millions for ‘exclusive’ dance training while he was covertly working with their opponents at the same time. It was also mentioned that none of his clients had won any major competitions in the past 5 years. D: The article accuses Bellen of taking money under false pretenses, this is immoral and could be illegal. The article also implies Bellen is incompetent, since his clients do not win any competitions. Overall, the statements (until proven true or otherwise defended) would cause the average person in Hong Kong to hold him in less regard. I: Mr. Bellen is named in the article. He is identifiable. P: The article is published on Fair Daily News, which has a circulation of 500,000 papers. In addition, this article was posted to its Facebook page, where it generated 800,000 views. *Hong Kong, New Zealand, Canada, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, UK, South Africa, India, Jamaica – not an exhaustive list, which can be found here – but these jurisdictions will have a greater likelihood of being reported on in English in a reliable news source. CHECK your sources carefully – do not use blogs or tabloids – use trusted media outlets only.

Q: Well, let me ask you this. Did you commit a robbery at a service station on Baytree Road last July 14?
A: Yes, I did.
Q: And did you help take the attendant, Larry Totmann, out to a campground somewhere away from that station?
A: Yes, sir.
Q: And did you personally see Eric Knapp, your co-defendant, shoot and kill that attendant?
A: Yes, sir.
Q: Describe for us how you and Knapp went about robbing and murdering Totmann.
A: It wasn’t me. It was Knapp that shot the kid, not me. We had gone up to the gas station, got my car filled with gas. While I was . . . I went in the bathroom. While I was in the bathroom some other people drove up in a car, young kids it sounded like, and they had an argument with the attendant about using the telephone. When it was all over, I came out, and I got back in the car while Knapp put a gun on him.
Q: All right. Did the young people who had driven up, did they leave before you got back into the car?
A: Yes, sir.
Q: Then what happened?
A: I started the car, and Knapp made the kid take all the money out of the register, and he found a gun hidden under the counter and put it in a box with the money.
Q: Tell us what happened after that.
A: Well, sir, Knapp told the kid to get into the car with us, and, uh, I drove out of town about five miles.
Q: Where was Knapp all that time?
A: He was in the back seat with the kid. He had his gun on him, and the box with the money.
Q: And then what happened?
A: I was driving out toward a campground I use sometimes, and Knapp told me to stop. He told the kid to get out of the car and lay down in some bushes along the road. I didn’t know he was going to shoot the kid, I swear. The kid hadn’t caused us any trouble, and I thought we’d just dump him there so he couldn’t call the cops right away.
Q: But Knapp shot him, didn’t he?
A: Yes, sir.
Q: How many times?
A: Four. He fired four shots. I don’t know how many times he hit him.
Q: Did Knapp shoot him in the head?
A: Well, sir, I couldn’t see that. It was dark, and they were off the side of the road. I just heard the shots and saw like blue flames coming out of his gun.
Q: Uh, how far away from Totmann was Knapp when the shots were fired?
A: Not over three or five feet. He was standing right over him.
Q: Did Totmann say anything or try to run away?
A: No, he just kept lying there. He’d done everything we said, and I don’t think he expected it. He just lay there; he never moved.
Q: What . . . well, what did you do after that?
A: I drove Eric home. We had a couple beers at his apartment and divided the money. There wasn’t much, not even a hundred dollars.
Q: What did you do with the gun?
A: The next night we went out and threw both guns down a sewer. It was over on the other side of town, near a ballpark.
Q: Do you know why Knapp decided to kill Totmann?
A: He told me the kid recognized him, that the kid had seen him before. And he . . . he was afraid the kid might’ve seen my license number, the license number on my car.
Q: Why didn’t you try to prevent the murder?
A: How could I? I didn’t know he was going to shoot anyone, I really didn’t. We’d never talked about that. I thought we’d just drop the kid there and leave.
Q: Can you tell us why you’ve decided to confess?
A: The murder wasn’t my idea; I didn’t pull the trigger. I didn’t know Eric was going to shoot the kid. I don’t think I should die, and I thought maybe if I cooperated, I wouldn’t get the death penalty.
Q: Have the police or anyone else promised you anything in return for testifying against Knapp?
A: No sir. No one’s promised me anything, nothing at all. I wish they would

The aim of this series of observations is to deepen a skill you use already everyday.

Many of you will be limited by what you are able to observe because of ongoing health concerns related to the pandemic and by your own schedules and other responsibilities. With outdoor observations in mind, know that I have had students in the past observe from their front porch, their backyard, their garden, at a park, a dog park, by the river, from a table outside a coffee shop/restaurant, and their own children at play. The aim of this series of Observations is to deepen a skill you use already everyday. Choose a safe site of your choice that you are interested in observing. You will be in the same place for all three observations. Observation 1, Map, and Reflection will be posted to BB for your Qual Team and for me to read and support in its development. Please post typed, double spaced observation notes and a reflection on 1) how you think the observation went and 2) what you think your strengths in observing are 3) what you experience as challenging in the observation. I will note that it is posted and offer feedback but I will not assess it for a grade. Observation 2, Refined Map, and Reflection will be submitted to assignments in BB Based on feedback, refine your natural observation skills, and turn in your typed, double spaced Observation 2, Map, and Reflection on 1) how you think the observation went and 2) what you think your strengths in observing are 3) how you are cultivating new strengths and 4) what you experienced as challenging in the observation Observation 3 will be submitted to assignments in BB Incorporating a last round of feedback from me, complete one last observation. Please do not complete Observation 3 until you have feedback from me on Observation 2. As you begin your observations remember your readings. Pay attention to v the setting, v the participants, v their use of the space, v events, v gestures & movement, v and dialogue (if there is any). Remember to map the space for your Qualitative Team for Observation 1 and for me in Observation 2. Describe the physical space and the general tenor of the space or broad sweep observations, nothing in particular, observations in search of paradoxes, and observations that search for problems/challenges facing people in your setting, problems/challenges of the setting (See Glesne, 2016, p. 70-81 and 91-95 for guidance). All observation notes need to be typed and double-spaced. You do not need to recreate your map digitally unless this is something you enjoy doing. As you type up your observation notes after each observation, recall any details you want to add and designate them with your own system of recognition, e.g., bold, italics, parentheses etc. Please double-space your observation notes and use a 12-point font.

Learning Goal: I’m working on a journalism multi-part question and need an expla

Learning Goal: I’m working on a journalism multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.PurposeUse this take-home, open-book final essay (please work alone) as an opportunity to construct the best ethical guidelines from class that you can use as a personal reference in your future career (so it can be specific to journalism, PR, film, etc.). Essentially, this will serve as a summary of the most useful things you’ve learned and discovered about yourself and media ethics, ending in your own professional code of ethics.It should reflect a mixture of textbook or other scholarly references, class lectures, and your own principles and beliefs.
You may draw on writings you did throughout the course, but need to address the specific questions asked.
When you use ideas from a scholarly source, including materials from the textbook or other class readings, cite the source, in APA format (page #s for direct quotes).
You MUST cite all your sources, but you need to include the references at the end ONLY for sources other than class readings (which are not required). It will help if you read through all the questions before you start.
LEARNING OUTCOMESClarify your own values and use them to identify ethical guidelines, theories, and a decision-making process that you plan to use moving forward (SLO 7).
Describe the major tenets of the professional ethical guidelines/codes for your chosen communication field (SLO 5).
Think critically and evaluate the ethicality of choices made by media industries, communication professionals, media users, and government regulators, according to the principles of truth, justice, and minimization of harm (SLO 1).
Tasks:Please submit this essay as a single Word document.
Use Times New Roman 12-point font and one-inch margins, and double space throughout.
Please include the question numbers and number the pages.
See suggested lengths for answers; FYI, one paragraph = about 4-5 sentences. Based on these guidelines, the essay will be about 7 to 8 pages long. But I’m especially interested in the thoroughness and quality of your answers to each question.
Cite Sources using APA format. If you need help with the format, go to the Course Help Page.
PART 1: YOU AND PLANNING YOUR AMAZING FUTUREWhat are the top four virtues you want to exemplify as a media practitioner and why? How can you or have you developed these character traits? [about a half page]
Consider who gets the benefit of your talents and time, and then finish this sentence: I want to work for (or start) an organization that… [one paragraph]
Legacy: At your retirement party, what do you want your colleagues (or the community) to say about you and your career? This should be something you believe you could earn/deserve. [one paragraph]
PART 2: ETHICAL THEORY AND YOUR MORAL BELIEFSArticulate your basic definitions of principles of right and wrong in general (not media-specific). To apply broadly, the principles must be abstract yet written with enough detail to apply to the way you live or want to live. You may want to specify the meaning of a key term or incorporate exceptions to the rule. Be concise: Keep each principle to one or two sentences.Something is right if it ____________________________________________________.Something is wrong if it ___________________________________________________.
Are you more of a moral relativist or a moral absolutist/objectivist? (in general, not related to media issues).Explain how you know this and what the lines or boundaries are for you as far as where your relativism ends.
In answering this, don’t just give a specific example of an act you disagree with, but, rather, phrase your disagreement in abstract terms applicable to multiple situations. [one or two paragraphs]
Ethical Theories you plan to follow.List five or six general guiding questions you will ask to make ethical decisions in life (all based on duty-based, utilitarian, virtue ethics, ubuntu, and/or ethics of care).
Explain which ethical theory or theories guide each of these questions.
Explain how these chosen theoretical perspectives are informed by or relate to your core definitions about right and wrong (from Part II, Question 1). [about one page]
PART 3: PROFESSIONAL ETHICS, YOUR DECISION-MAKING & CODESExplain what you think is the biggest macro/social-level ethical concern regarding/facing your chosen media profession. Make sure I know which media profession you chose. For example, macro issues in journalism might include concentration of ownership, the rise of infotainment, diversity in employment, etc. In your answer, explain how this problem/concern is related to ethics in terms of truth, justice, and/or minimization of harm. [one page]
List three to five tips related to maximizing Truth via your profession (addressing things like: accuracy, context/completeness, and/or balance; deception; photo alteration; persuasion; withholding information versus disclosure; etc.). Be specific and include disclaimers/exceptions where appropriate. This is a good place to pull ideas from the textbook.
List three to five tips to Minimize Harm via your profession (addressing things like: privacy, confidentiality, offensive or anti-social content, etc.). Be specific and include disclaimers/exceptions where appropriate. This is a good place to pull ideas from the textbook.
Justice/Fairness: Consider this related to media representation choices you may make as a media creator/producer. Choose three of the following social categories/groups: Race & Ethnicity; Gender; Sexual Orientation; Religion; Disability; Juveniles/Children. For EACH social category/group you choose, write the best two or three guiding questions or tips you would consider to ensure that you are being fair/sensitive/respectful. NOTE: These are questions you would ask YOURSELF about what YOU are doing/choosing. For example, for disability, you could ask “Am I avoiding defining this person primarily based on their disability?”
Your Professional Code of Ethics: List however many professional codes (rules/statements from the codes) that stand out to you as the most critical/useful/valuable to make a comprehensive professional code of ethics for you.Make sure to cite which professional organization they are from (and you can use more than one organization’s codes if you wish).
Also list additional principles that you want to add to the list of existing professional codes to personalize them or improve them according to your value system – so they are useful and applicable as your professional codes of ethics (this means you are crafting and writing some of your own codes).
You should organize or categorize all these codes in a meaningful way.
After you’ve created this list of codes, write a substantial paragraph or two (about one page) explaining your choices (i.e., in terms of why you included or excluded certain ideas and how you intentionally framed or phrased them to create certain meanings that fit with your values/principles). [about 2 pages total]
CriteriaCONTENT: Evidence of learning and exhibiting a deep or thoughtful understanding of the course material on media ethics, including use of class texts, in your answers to all the questions.
THOROUGHNESS: Answering all the questions thoroughly according to what was asked. The suggested length for each question is a clue, but I also will be looking at how thoroughly your answers address each question.
WRITING QUALITY: This includes grammar, sentence structure, clarity of expression, no spelling errors or typos, APA format for citations, etc.
