Mackenzie, Geraldine (2007) Soft on crime, not doing the time: the media, law and order and the criminal justice system. In: 21st Conference of the International Society for Reform of the Criminal Law (ISRCL 2007), 22–26 Jun 2007, Vancouver, BC. Canada.
I begin this paper with a very Australian media parable about a man called I will call X. This story illustrates my theme of how the media can manipulate, or at least attempt to manipulate public opinion on crime and criminal justice matters. I then move to a discussion on the courts and the media, and finally some suggestions on what can be done to alleviate the current problems.
