Panpa Bulletin : June 2013
PRINT POST APPROVED: 239556/00015 Warning about 'need for speed' USING social media without ap- plying the same news values as in the traditional media can have seri- ous ramifications for media organi- sations, says a media law expert. Currently, there is no difference between media laws that apply to traditional media and the media laws that apply to publishing on- line and through social media. Gadens Lawyers partner and media law expert Roger Blow said journalists need to be particularly careful with the harsher demands of a 24-hour news cycle. "Given the speed at which media now operates, it's a natural reaction for journalists to try to get the sto- ries out quicker," Mr Blow said. "Journalists should be aware that there is no differentiation with respect to potential issues like def- amation when publishing to social media, online or print. "When they're posting something online, they're being judged to the same legal standard as they would be if they were putting the same con- tent into a hard-copy publication." Griffith University lecturer and media law researcher Profes- sor Mark Pearson said journal- ists' checking practices shouldn't change just because they're writ- ing online. "If in doubt, leave it out," he said. "They need to be just as wary of the legal pitfalls of publishing on their websites and social media as they were about traditional media, but they need to make those de- cisions or take that advice much more quickly in an instant news environment." Morality and common sense are the biggest things that jour- nalists have to take into account when using social media, accord- ing to Mr Blow.
