Discussing public’s right to know.

Hulk Hogan case – issue of privacy. Ended up being a violation of his privacy & he won the trial.

Bashing the media does not help overall; not productive. Media is the 4th branch of govt. (technically)

Wouldn’t have society we have without the media.

Rolling Stone

  • Went off on Greek life unfairly
  • Negative portrayal of UVA;
  • One comment said Jackie should transfer and report to the police;
  • One of the reasons this still happens is because people remain silent about it

Someone in the class had a friend who was raped last semester.

Homework:

  • continue to go paragraph by paragraph to decontextualize it
  • read report sent in email
