Manage commentary in news coverage


RTDNA is hosting a session on March 25 about the place of commentary in news coverage:

There is a place for commentary journalism, but it is not a substitute for carefully sourced fact based reporting.

RTDNA’s new coverage guidelines offer advice and direction on how to properly identify commentary in news coverage and how to make sure it upholds the journalistic promise of Truth and Accuracy. Join the RTDNA Ethics Committee on March 25 to see how.


Sign up now for a 30-minute lunch and learn on March 25 at 1 p.m. CT to learn how to ethically and effectively use identify commentary in journalism.

Members of the RTDNA Board of Directors and Ethics Committee, Tim Scheld of WCBS Newsradio 880 in New York City and Lynn Hatter of WFSU in Tallahassee, will review the new coverage guidelines and help develop strategies to apply them in your newsroom.
