At what point during the writing process do your writers stop to consider the privacy of all parties involved in the article?
I read an article published recently about a man arrested for negligent homicide in the death of a 6-year-old boy. The man’s home address was listed.
Does the writer consider who else lives at that address?
Say a wife or children?
If the man does have a family who resides at the address and are not involved in the case, isn’t the writer then invading the privacy of his family and in this case potentially young children?
And as such putting these children at risk?
Does the media know no bounds?
