11363. Constitutional Guarantees and the Media in the o.j. Simpson Trial.
Examines the conflict between the constitutional guarantees of free press and the defendant's right to a public trial against the constitutional guarantees of due process and the defendant's right to a fair trial by an impartial jury. Concludes that tabloid news media who pay witnesses are not protected under First Amendment rights, since they have infringed upon the defendant's constitutional rights to due process and a fair trial. 5 pages, 11 footnotes in text, 9 bibliographic sources.
