Have you ever stopped to think about the people involved in a news story you have read, watched or heard? Have you ever wondered how they felt, how they were treated by the journalist(s) covering the story and what happened them after the journalists moved on? In my radio documentary, and supporting thesis document, I set out to meet some people whose good name was tarnished by a news story in which they featured. I find out if journalistic ethics were adhered to or completely removed from the reality of the coverage. I also discover the real and lasting impact of having one's reputation questioned, dissected and ultimately tarnished because it was linked to a negative news story. The documentary also endeavors to explore the concept of reputation and its standing in the legal system whilst a tabloid editor reveals the pressures on paper to produce factually correct content in a very competitive market.
