The Media’s Right to Prosecute

with one comment

There’s a real tension between the public’s right to know and the media’s right to prosecute

This line caught my attention while reading ESPN Ombudsman Don Ohlmeyer’s column, Serve the Audience.  This was Mr. Ohlmeyer’s thoughts on SportsNation’s criticisms of ESPN’s decision to not initially report on a civil suit filed against Ben Roethlisberger.

I agree with Mr. Ohlmeyer’s conclusion on how ESPN should have handled the situation; however, the line about the media’s right to prosecute is really disturbing.  I have no experience in media; I am simply a sports fan who enjoys watching a good game and tries to stay abreast of current events. I believe news reports ought to be accurate and informational.  I am not sure where prosecution fits into the equation.  Ever.
