I’ve been late getting to this sooner. MPR and the Society of Professional Journalists are hosting a discussion on new media ethics.
According to the SPJ news release:
But how much do the traditional journalistic touchstones of vetting sources and fair and transparent reporting matter at a time when anyone with a cell phone can publish images instantly for the entire world to see?
I tend to disagree with the notion that there is a “traditional journalistic touchtone of …. transparent reporting” (while embracing the notion that fairness is certainly a goal), but we can talk about it in a couple of weeks.
Hope to see you there. Bring your questions and comments because I’ll run out of them early.
