Media, money and mayhem
Two very different, but similarly themed, pieces concerning the media and criminal justice issues have jumped to the top of my reading list:
- Here from the Columbia Journalism Review is an article entitled "The Shame Game" that discusses at length the ethical issues raised by Dateline's "To Catch a Predator" series.
- Here at SSRN is Professor Sara Sun Beale's recent piece entitled, "The News Media's Influence on Criminal Justice Policy: How Market-Driven News Promotes Punitiveness."
The CJR piece is interesting in part because it is written from journalism perspective; Sara's piece is interesting in part because it highlights one of many economic realities that impact criminal justice realities.

It's not just an ethical issue - newspeople can be held liable for civil rights violations if they're acting as an arm of the state in the course of newsgathering.
