Presented at ONA18
September 12, 2018
More from this event →

Our national conversation on gun culture is an ever-shifting kaleidoscope touching on suicide, handgun violence and mass shootings. By sharing their perspectives on what we get right in our coverage and what media needs to improve in order to save lives, our amazing group of experts will help develop a more coherent approach for covering shooting incidents of all kinds.

This session is designed for:

  • Editors whose newsrooms have ever had to cover a shooting incident of any kind
  • Those feeling lost in the constantly changing narrative around shootings
  • Anyone interested in the ethics of gun coverage
