In this age of “Fake News” versus “Real News”, the importance of newsroom ethics shouldn’t be understated. To earn the public’s trust, journalists must strive to be accurate, objective, fair and ethical.
Join us as our panelists touch on topics like conflicts of interest; using anonymous sources; your filming rights in public and private settings; and fair use practices with regards to licensed material featured in news stories. They will also touch on how to identify, protect, and defend legitimate journalism.
