Yet another blog about journalism.

November 21, 2011 ckeeter1

How to gather news:

Treat new sources fairly and professionally.

Don’t promise favorable coverage in return for cooperation.

Never pay for interviews or unpublished documents.

Don’t ask tons of questions about people’s personal life.

Journalism ethics can be as easy as 1,2,3 and as simple as rules that we learned in kindergarten.

Be honest and fair.

Don’t lie or steal.

Don’t take advantage of people.

Accept no gifts and no favors. [note, this website says it too, so its serious!]

Show compassion.

Keep an open mind to criticism, and correct mistakes.

Online Journalism Ethics from the Conference:

If you publish online you have new and meaningful ways to tell your story.

Don’t let values such as truth change as you face pressure and competition as you publish.

Limited resources can not be an excuse for crappy work or causing harm.
