Author(s): Wencislaus S Nansi, Antonius Sudirman
Abstract: Antonius Sudirman digital-media that delivered before the legal process who have preceded the legal process. Writing this thesis uses qualitative methods with secondary data in the form of library data in the form of books, research results, laws and regulations, and digital information. As a result, digital media coverage that includes hoaxes, slander, and criminalization against someone without going through a legal process has violated the presumption of innocence, which is one of the fundamental principles in criminal law. To overcome this, of course, media actors, both journalists and media management companies, must obey the law and journalistic code of ethics while refining regulations that specifically regulate online news media, as well as strengthening supervision by relevant ministries of online media.
