Cases and Materials [on] Mass Media Law
This is a book about media law, not a book about the First Amendment. Media law has many sources other than the First Amendment. The law of defamation & invasion of privacy is largely state common law. A reporter's privilege to refuse to disclose confidences is controlled in many states by statutes. Open-meetings & open-records statutes determine the outcome of most controversies over press access to government information. Broadcast regulation is largely accomplished by federal statutes & Federal Communications Commission regulations. Mass Media Law, Sixth Edition explores these sources in a thought-provoking manner that will add to class discussion.
