Mass Communication Law; Cases and Comment.
Gillmor, Donald M.; Barron, Jerome A.
The teaching materials presented in this casebook combine two perspectives: that of the journalist and that of the lawyer. The holdings of the courts on cases involving the First Amendment, libel, pornography, fair trial, free press, and the regulation of radio and television broadcasting are presented. In addition some problems of law and journalism are discussed more briefly--freedom of information, the right of privacy, advertising, copyright, etc. The casebook relies mainly on the words of the judges themselves and provides comments and questions for discussion. Appendices contain the report of the Committee on the Operation of the Jury System on the "Free Press-Free Trial" Issue, the case of Red Lion Broadcasting v. Federal Communications Commission, and selected provisions of the Federal Communications Act of 1934. A subject index is also provided. (JY)
