RICHARD JEWELL’S CASE4Besides, some are likely to lose trust for the evidence provided in defense of the accused because of the effect of media. It is evident that the suspect ends up being accused for something that they did not do only because they were already confirmed guilty by the media.Given the above, the media is a deadly weapon when it comes to justice. To sum up, the media ought not to announce suspects as criminals as this has a significant impact on justice. The news comes up with various unnecessary information to pinthe suspect as being guilt and this is what the audience also perceives to be true as it is evident that news reporters ought to produce only the truth. More so, the criminal justice system must fight trial by media from undermining it. The media has to gather enough information about a suspect before publicizing them as a criminal.
