How do you make good decisions when covering the toughest stories in a 24/7 news cycle while they are breaking right in front of you?
In this 24/7 news world, speed is important, but the cost of errors is a loss of trust from your audience. Journalists make mistakes when speed and being first is the only goal.
A webinar this week, available for viewing now, introduces you to how human beings make tough decisions and teaches you how to more effectively make tough calls. Using real examples, it is a deep dive into the pitfalls of knee-jerk reactions and the benefits of thoughtful, ethical news coverage. It looks at notorious examples of dumb stories proving that speed is the enemy of common sense and we’ll identify four key questions we can ask in order to avoid joining the journalism “wall of shame.”
It’s presented by Kevin Benz of i-Media Strategies.
