Cameras in the courtroom and its affects on judicial proceedings and First Amendment rights
TOPIC CONTENT. First identify the First Amendment right or ethical virtue you wish to address. For example you could say I wish to research an issue concerning freedom of speech as it applies to privacy. Or you could say, I plan to investigate how the pressure on news media to produce viral content for social media has had a negative impact on truth and accuracy. Second, give an example case in point or an incident that illustrates how this issue is timely, relevant and requires a solution or resolution. For example, you could say I plan to study defamation as it pertains to the New York Times lawsuit involving Sarah Palin. Or you might say I plan to investigate how to resolve the problem of fake news content on social media. ISSUE CONTENT. Third, describe how such a legal problem in practice, or controversial issues needs to be corrected, solved and/or resolved. The goal is to present relevant points and principles that will form an argument in communication law or ethics.
