The “Media Trial” Caused by Public Opinion Monitoring in the New Media Era

Liu Lei*, Kim Kye-Tae**


As two forces that are contradictory but unified, conflicting and harmonious, the relationship between the media and the judiciary shows a very complicated form. They will not only criticize and fight each other, but also guide and promote each other. What the media has is a power of public opinion and a power of thought. This power seems invisible, but it can be transformed into a huge social influence. Media reports have the political right to freely express and supervise criticism, and objective and fair monitoring and reporting of the truth of events is the lifeblood of news. Judicial adjudication power is unique to the judiciary. It is a coercive force endowed by the state. Judges make reasonable trials of cases based on the law, in combination with their own discretion and previous precedents. “Justice” has become the inner core of the judiciary. The media supervision will supervise the fair and legal progress of the judicial process, monitor the corruption problems that may arise within the judiciary, monitor all problems that affect the judicial process, and actively promote the judiciary to move towards a more reasonable and fair direction. However, compared with the positive and benign interaction between the two, the conflict and confrontation between the media and the judiciary are becoming more and more acute. At this stage, there have been many incidents of media interference with judicial independence, which have seriously affected judicial independence and led to judicial adjudication. injustice occurs.
