Privacy Law | Online Assignment Help
You will be presented with the raw material (quotes) for a story that involves significant potential problems with libel, and also involves concerns about privacy law and contempt of court. You will be required to write a 1,450 word essay discussing the risks, if any, how you might reduce them while writing an enticing news story. You will also discuss how your story might be defended if you were sued for libel. Using the legal advice you have proposed, you will then write a 300 word news story. This will be discussed in the third lecture. Read carefully through the quotes for the story on the Minister’s alleged affair. Then write a 1,450-word essay from the point of view of a newspaper editor who is assessing on the one hand the potential legal dangers presented by this story and, on the other hand, the need for an enticing story. Assume that your newspaper is a mid-market regional paper, which covers Newtown, where the Riskitts live. Once you have written your essay, you should then write a 300-word news report using the raw material from the quotes provided (you do not, of course, need to use all of the quotes). Your story should take account of the legal advice you offered in your essay. see the attachment of the quots below some rerences: Week 1- Foundations and Roots of Media Law (08 Jan) Dwyer, T.
