T.olander censorship[1]

  1. 1. Censorship in Public Relations<br />
  2. 2. Public Relations and law<br />Seitel (2010), p.135) writes “ The internet has introduced a new dimension to the law affecting free speech. Not all speech is created equal”<br />“ First Amendment protection with, among other tests, the particular medium of expression. For example, speech that would be perfectly accepted if uttered in a public park could constitutionally be banned from broadcast from a sound truck.” (Seitel, The Practice of Public Relations (2010),p.135)<br />
  3. 3. Censorship<br />Communications Decency Act (CDA) was passed in Congress 1996 which introduced criminal penalties, which could enforce a fine of as much as $250, 00 and a prison term to two years for making indecent speech available to “a person under 18 years of age”. (Seitel, The Practice of Public Relations (2010),p.135)<br />
  4. 4. First Article of Bill Of Rights<br />“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievance” — The first article of the Bill of Rights<br />
  5. 5. History<br />By the 20th century in America, censorship became directed to material they found obscene such as, James Joyce’s Ulysses and D.H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley's Lover.<br />
  6. 6. Guidelines <br />Individuals have the right to be left alone and to withhold certain information about them self from public scrutiny.<br />Does the person have a "reasonable" expectation of privacy?<br />Is the information of "public concern"?<br />Is it highly offensive?<br />
  7. 7. Employee Newsletter Guidelines<br />Keep the focus on organization-related activities.<br />Have employees submit "personals" in writing.<br />Double-check all information for accuracy.<br />Ask: "Will this embarrass anyone or cause someone to be the butt of jokes?"<br />Don't rely on secondhand information: confirm the facts with the person involved.<br />Don't include racial or ethic designations of employees in any articles.<br />
