Media and judiciary involve many problems. It is an interdisciplinary issue that coversjournalism, law and sociology, and a challenge in legal affairs as well. This paper, focusingon the typical problems, is divided into four chapters. The 1st chapter discusses therealization of modern media and its relationship with judiciary. Interaction and the naturalcontradiction between them are stated through an analysis of their nature. Based onthese, this chapter tries to expose the lack of judicial normalization in China mediareporting as well as the causes, that is, the serious deficiency in legal regulations for newreporting and lack of self‐discipline within the journalist profession have led to sucharbitrariness of news reporting that spoils both judge thinking and judicial independence.The 2nd chapter, by means of comparative study, supported by case studies, examines thesuccessful experiences from countries with different legal systems. This is done with theconsideration that, in China today, neither in theory nor in practice have any workablesolutions been produced to handle related problems. The 3rd chapter aims at buildingprinciples and regulations for judiciary to deal with media from the perspective of criminaljustice. Such ideas as"the principle of tolerance"and"the principle of prudent handling"are suggested. It is also pointed out, considering the recent emergence of television relay,net‐mediated public sentiment, expert position papers, etc., that special regulationsshould be made to provide guidelines for the law courts in properly coping with the mediaand maintaining positive interaction between judiciary and media. The 4th chapter intends to provide references for system development in properly handlingthe relationship between judiciary and media, by means of building principles andregulations for media reporting justice, improving the construction of judicial systems, andsetting up coordinating mechanism to communicate with the media, etc. It is hoped allthis could actively ease the tension between judiciary and media, so that they, bothvalued in a democratic, law‐governed society, could achieve balanced development,harmonious co‐existence and positive interaction.
