Blog 7- Media Law

By Gabriela Sanches

I chose the case of University of Virginia fraternity $25-million defamation suit against Rolling Stones for publishing a “fake” information on their article, which is about a woman’s account of being raped by many men at Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house four years ago.

According to Mass Communication- Living in a media world (2011) book, libel is: a published statement that unjustifiably exposes someone to ridicule or contempt; for a statement to be libel, it must satisfy the three elements of defamation, identification, and publication. And the statement that Rolling Stones published contains all three.
