Class Notes 2/7/17

“live and learn”

what to do and what not to do

all info in an affidavit is public record

when in doubt leave it out

is a journalist responsible for the decisions of the people they write about?

have to put yourself in the shoes of the people you’re writing about

the only person you really have a responsibility to is the victim

should always be the victim’s choice to share their story

leave out identifying information to protect the victims from retraumatization
