About this product
- DescriptionThis widely used introduction to media law takes a journalist's perspective. Written in a clear, n-legalistic fashion, it shows how journalists can produce ethical, hard-edged reportage while staying on the right side of the law. The authors also explain how to negotiate some of the key ethical minefields of day-to-day reporting, focusing on ethical dilemmas which can have legal consequences. This edition offers a comprehensive overview of aspects of law which relate to a journalist's work including defamation, contempt, confidentiality, privacy, trespass, intellectual property and ethical regulation. Recent cases and examples are used to illustrate key points. Also included is an introduction to the legal system and guidelines on reporting legal issues. Tips, summaries and a handy flow chart to defamation law make The Journalist's Guide to Media Law a handy reference for professionals and an essential text for students.

Laws that control journalists and cases that prove.
As a student at Open University Unit "Media Law" this 3rd edition had been the textbook. This edition was written entirely by the head teacher Prof. Mark Pearson. This edition a little different from the next edition with Fairfax legal persons assistance with the writing is interesting. With Prof. Pearson's academic writing comes the type of writing required for the studies. The very knowledgeable and case studies is very interesting. With the 4th edition and the inclusion of a person with hands on in the field comes that addition aspect. As the 13 weeks of this university unit in my degree passes I will know and appreciate these books in edition 3 (blue cover)and edition 4 (white cover).
