Media Corporate Responsibility

Spring 2019

Taught By: Lynn Oberlander

Section: A

CRN: 4319

Credits: 3

This course will provide an overview of media law, including constitutional, regulatory and statutory schemes. The course will be organized into thematic sections, described more fully below, and discussion will be augmented by publishing court opinions and audiovisual materials, as well as guest speakers from the media industry. By the end of the course, the students should be aware of the legal framework for the media industry generally, as well as the different manner in which the law treats print, broadcast, cable, and the Internet. Throughout the class, we will focus on the interplay between the corporate ownership of mass media, the government, and the ramifications for the fourth estate. Does the label "news" unfairly protect plainly commercial enterprises from the costs and risks that other businesses face?

This section is open to Master of Science and graduate certificate Media Management students only. All other graduate students may request access three weeks before the start of the course by emailing mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu.
