Week of Sept. 20 & 22

September 20, 2011

This week, the Tuesday and Thursday lecture sessions will be pegged to the First Amendment and three key issues for journalists and society: libel, privacy, and prior restraint. You will learn only the basic concepts that informed citizens should know. For deeper understanding, and if you care at all about your freedoms and the restrictions on the press, you need to take MMC 4211 Media Law & Ethics.  Meanwhile, Gannett has built a great website about the First Amendment. And that little university in Gainesville operates the Brechner Center. But nothing beats the real thing. If you’re contemplating a trip for Fall Break and seeking knowledge and inspiration, consider visiting the Newseum in Washington, D.C.
