Hate speech are comments that cause harm to individuals, and promotes division and intolerance. Individuals, who exercise their freedom of speech in this manner, must of course be aware of and face the consequences that may come with it.

Relational aggression (also called social aggression) is defined as intentionally harming another person’s social relationships, feelings of acceptance, or inclusion within a group (e.g., Crick & Grotpeter, 1995). Some examples of relational aggression include saying bad things about people behind their backs, withdrawing affection to get what you want, excluding others from your circle of friends, and giving someone the “silent treatment.” “Recent research shows that social pain may even linger longer than physical pain (Chen, Williams, Fitness, & Newton, 2008).
Freedom of expression is essential in the media because it is a strong indication that there is democracy but it should not pass the extent of rudeness. According to Haridakis (1999), there is a difference between freely expression your opinion and unethical commentator behavior such as delivering information with knowledge, escorted by opinion without explanation and soothsaying without heed of consequences (p. 230). Journalists’ role in the media is to educate the public with facts and leave them to make a decision based on these facts without ruining the reputation of the subjects included.

Like everyone else in this room I was aghast at the news of a terror attack in the heart of Paris. While initially my thoughts were with the victims, they soon turned to the possibility of a similar attack occurring here in Australia.
