Maybe you’re working for a giant, or maybe your a one-person operation.

 

Either way, it’s your manufactured and modular home industry too.

Thousands depend on us, and we depend on caring people willing to share what they know, to help inform others, so that they can navigate and grow.

While dozens will be there, the numbers will be tiny compared to the total numbers working in the manufactured housing industry.

But if you or someone you know is going to be in New Orleans, LA for the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) winter meeting, the next few paragraphs are about news tips and citizen journalism.

As an industry executive told MHProNews recently, why not? If they are proud of what they are doing, why wouldn’t they want to have that spread as far and wide as possible? We can’t be everywhere, but some of you will already be there or know someone who will be there.

The Top Twelve Questions for Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) CEO, Richard “Dick” Jennison

Shortly after the article above was published, Dick Jennison, MHI’s CEO cancelled his public presentation.  Why?  As the photo below reveals, he was there on the Louisville trade show floor.

As an award-winning  veteran industry executive told MHProNews, ‘if they are proud of what they are doing, then they should have nothing to hide. They should want the publicity.’

Do nothing you would not be happy to have an unfriendly but intelligent reporter write about on the front page of a newspaper.” – Warren Buffett, according to the New York Times.

For those who aren’t in NOLA and the MHI meeting, you can skip to the next section where you’ll find our headline news week in review from 1.28.2018 to 2.4.2018 and What’s New on MHLivingNews, etc..

News Tips and Citizen Journalism

‘News’ is a bit in the eye of the beholder.

What’s of interest to a thousands of manufactured housing professionals or investors may not be of interest to millions of others.

Numerous stories come our way as a result of news tips.  For those at MHI’s Winter Meeting, there will be their ‘official version’ of what goes on.  Then, there will be what some could see as a different reality, what actually is said and done.  Both are news of interest.

MHI will be handing out packets, and will give presentations.  They want those presentations secret.  Why?  When only a few dozen will be there, and it impacts tens of thousands in the industry, and millions of others too, isn’t what said there news that should get a broader hearing?

MHI doesn’t want recordings or handouts shared.  What’s the legal take on such questions?  We’re not attorneys, but we did some fact checks, here’s some of what we found about the subject, and their sources.

ReportersCommitteeFreedomOfThePressDailyBusienssNewsMHProNewsConsent is not required for the taping of a non-electronic communication uttered by a person who does not have a reasonable expectation of privacy in that communication. A federal appellate court has held that … …the test is whether the parties to the conversation have a “reasonable expectation of privacy.”” said RCFP.org, as well as Google Answers, and Detective Services.

Consent is Not Always Required

 

——-

Under Louisiana Revised Statute 15:1301, et seq. (The Louisiana Electronic Surveillance Act; specifically see La. R.S. 15:1303(C)(4) ), if one of the parties to a conversation knows the conversation is being recorded, then recording the conversation is legal.”  – Matthew S Smith, 5 star litigation attorney.

 

Recording in Public

The general rule is that people in public places must assume they might be photographed or recorded, particularly if they are officials carrying out their public duties. Therefore, you may photograph, film and record what you can easily see or hear in public places, even if the recorded people have not specifically consented to such…” – according to RCFP.org (Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press was founded by leading journalists and media lawyers in 1970).
