Stand up for your work

With polarization, a global pandemic, social media upheaval and disinformation at the forefront for several years, there has been a sharp decline in trust in the media. While no one knows what is coming next, we do know that gaining and maintaining trust is vital for all journalists. 

series of short videos created by Trusting News for ONA20 Everywhere, explains how and why journalists  should stand up for their work when it is discredited or questioned, and how doing so helps establish trust between journalists and their audiences. 

While the series is positioned through the lens of political coverage, the concepts shared are  evergreen and applicable to any area of reporting.

Interested in a particular topic? This video series, webinars and select ONA Conference sessions can be found on the ONA Resources page, which is open to ONA members and non-members.
