ONA NYC: Journalism LULZ: Reporting With Humor

 An ONA Local event, hosted by ONA NYC

What is the role for humor in journalism, from hard news to politics to tech and pop culture? When does it work better than being straightforward? When should journalists strictly avoid it? What does its prevalence in new media reporting and social media say about where the media industry is heading? We’re bringing together a panel of funny journalists to tackle these questions and others, and hope you’ll join us. We may have one more name to add to the panel soon, so stay tuned.
