How do you maintain high content-verification standards with limited resources? How should your newsroom be clearing rights and crediting sources? What are the dos and don’ts of communicating with the public? How can you make sure social reporting staff stay safe and healthy? ONA’s Social Newsgathering Ethics Code has laid the groundwork for an ethical way forward. Industry-leading social journalists will help you put these principles into practice in your newsroom, whether large or small, legacy or digital-native, centralized or widely distributed. Learn best practices for social newsgathering, as well as how adopting ethics codes like these can give your organization a competitive edge.
