Got ethics? Good. Let’s Use Them to Help Reclaim Your Credibility
At a time when the President is leading the assault on the media’s credibility, news organizations need to reestablish the value of journalism to our democracy. The challenge, of course, is delivering journalism that truly serves the public good. To do that, journalists need to make better decisions about the appropriate roles of speed and accuracy, click-bait and enterprise, business opportunities and independence. How do we make those better decisions? Join Butch Ward of the Poynter Institute in a search for some really good questions and answers.
Schedule: Workshop is scheduled for 10 a.m. – 1:15 p.m. Includes continental breakfast beginning at 9:00 a.m., morning workshop and lunch at 12:30 p.m. Cost: $55, per person for PNA members. $85 for non-members.
