Welcome to the newsroom. I know you're eager to begin writing for the paper but first we have to go over some basic journalistic expectations.
Although we are granted freedom of speech, there are restrictions to what we can publish, like libel. Libel is the publication of a false statement of fact that seriously harms someone's reputation.
Firstly, we the press have three roles to fulfill. We must create an informed citizenry, be watchdogs, and be the "conscience of society."
In carrying out these roles, we are assisted by the five freedoms protected under the First Amendment. Which are the freedoms of religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition.
Now, libel should not be confused with slander. In order for something to be considered libel, it has to be a published manipulation of fact. Examples of this include articles about sexual misconduct allegations and criminal involvment.
There are also types of speech that are unprotected by these rights. These unprotected speeches are ones that invade the rights of others. This type of speech must create a clear and present danger .
