A brief history of high-profile media coverage of trials – and the sudden, recent change in how the coverage works; how and why social media is overtaking conventional media like TV, radio and newspapers as the main suppliers of news; how and why social media are now crucial for journalists and why you must understand “iterative reporting”; social media’s impact on jurors and court rulings; the scarcity of research on how social media and digital journalism impact witnesses and trials overall; pros and cons of social media and digital journalism in trial coverage.
