Miranda rights and cyberspace realities: Risks to "the right to remain silent"

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 18 (3 & 4):230 – 249 (2003)
This article is a critical and interpretive examination of moral and ethical issues that have emerged as the Internet and other digital information forms have evolved. It considers individual expectations of privacy for one's cyberspace communications against the greater public good for unencumbered access, by government and other organizations, to information that may be harmful to others. I argue for the need to find a reasonable balance between the individual's "right" not to disclose information that might be self-incriminating, as codified in the Miranda Rules, and the open communication principles advocated by professional journalists that are essential to a democratic society.
