 ONA Weekly No. 16

Community input on ONA’s DIY Ethics Code

Feedback from the ONA community already has been incorporated into our Do It Yourself Ethics Code project, which will allow journalists to create or customize codes that reflect their views of journalism. AP’s Tom Kent, who is leading the project, details the latest updates and how you can get involved. The crowdsourcing phase will be open until the first day of our annual conference, Sept. 25-27 in Chicago.

ONA’s comment to the FCC on open Internet

In case you missed it, we filed a comment with the FCC in support of net neutrality this week, arguing “the right public policy is one that ensures the Internet serves as an unrestricted platform for a rich, diverse and inclusive news media ecosystem.” Because of the flood of comments, the commenting period on Proceeding #14-28, Protecting and Promoting the Open Internet, has been extended to Friday, midnight ET.
