Details: "Legal and media commentators frequently argue that defamation law ‘chills’ media speech. But critical questions remain about whether a chilling effect exists. In particular, when media professionals produce news, are they restricted by defamation concerns? And if so, how? These questions are addressed in this paper, which provides an analysis of interview based fieldwork into news production practices and defamation law at major print media organisations in the US and Australia. On the basis of this analysis, we make three arguments. First, defamation law is perceived to have a more direct, and potentially chilling effect, in Australia. Second, despite this difference, the organisational processes for managing news production in the context of defamation law are similar. Third, journalists, editors and legal advisors actively negotiate organisational responses to defamation law. Overall, the research indicates that defamation law does not operate as a straightforward constraint, but rather through interactions and negotiations between media professionals and their legal advisors."
