Online Laws

It was déjà vu for me while reading this weeks assigned readings. I took Media Law and I have some experience with editing blog reactions. During my internship at the baltimoresun.com, the producers would have daily meetings and discuss questionable comments. They would discuss whether or not the comment should be allowed or deleted, some of them were tough decisions and some were easy.

One of the readings that I did find informative was one about ethical issues and values when it comes to online journalism. They are values that seem to sometimes slip your mind when your commenting on a blog or writing a story.

I think a lot will need to be considered when it comes to blogging and the comments that are made after blog posts. It’s a difficult question to answer. The reading about Libel Suits, blogs and comments really gets you thinking. I don’t know where I stand; I think I need to seemore develop before I can take a side. Freedom of speech is the obvious underlying policy that is being debated here. How do we control and regulate the internet is the underlying question.
