San Jose College Posting a Video of Someone without Their Consent Discussion
I’m studying and need help with a Social Science question to help me learn.
Following a debate among political candidates during a campaign, you quietly record video of candidates talking with individuals from the audience. One candidate, responding sym- pathetically to a person complaining about how an insurance company handled his insur- ance claim, says, “All insurance company executives ought to be shot.” Another candidate, talking with a person who is angry about illegal immigration, says,” Anyone sneaking across the border illegally ought to be shot. “Another candidate, sprawled on a chair in the back of the room, is snoring. And a fourth, a man, invites an attractive woman back to his hotel to continue their conversation over drinks. Discuss the ethics of posting videos of the candidates’ comments (or snoring) on the Web. Give reasons in favor of posting and reasons not to post. Which, if any, would you post? To what extent would, or should, your support of or opposi- tion to the candidate affect the decision?
