RTDNA offers session on social media ethics


The RTDNA is offering a session on Feb. 25 about social media ethics:

As the RTDNA Code of Ethics states clearly, our guiding principles are governed by Truth and Accuracy in reporting above all else. This dedication extends out from on air reporting and digital news platforms to social media and online blogs. Social media and blogs are important elements of journalism as they narrow the distance between journalists and the public. RTDNA’s new coverage guidelines offer advice and direction on managing your social media and blogs with this dedication to truth and accuracy at the forefront.

Join members of the RTDNA Board of Directors and Ethics Committee, Sheryl Worsley of KSL NewsRadio in Salt Lake City and Kimberly Wyatt of WEAR-TV in Pensacola, for a 30-minute Lunch & Learn to review the newly updated coverage guidelines and develop strategies to apply them in your newsroom.
