NameDatePeriodCase Study: To Catch A PredatorBackground Research:Two video summaries from Student Press Law Center Channelon YouTube (choose videos thatyou can compare and contrast with your case study). Be sure to examine similarities AND differences in a 3- to 5-sentence response.Video 1: Lawbreaking journalists are lawbreakers by Adam Goldstein, Attorney Advocate of SPLCSimilarities: I chose this video to relate with To Catch with Predators because it hits similar vein of the ethical problem of journalists feeding into sensationalized media. It also deals with minors and how they can be used to test things (ex. If you get carded for buying cigarettes), and how much like the show, it is advisableto use actual adults who seem like minors in order to avoid the grey area of legality.Differences: This video does differ as it does suggest that it is okay if you were merely covering an event, but what the show does is that it usually spurs on the event (baiting the predators), therefore it is beyond just mere covering as it is an active bait.Video 2: Stop Secret Police: They’re un-American by Brooke BeanSimilarities: This video is similar as it deals with the same sort of undercover detainment, as the video suggests with the kidnapping of the journalist.Differences: However this video is different as it doesn’t involve minors or catfishing. In fact the topic itself, as the description says is that the video was about private university police departments.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
