Intro to JRN: Famous Journalists and Ethics

We finished our famous journalist presentations before working to finish this Slideshow regarding ethics in journalism. We left off on slide 15, and here’s the slide with all of the questions to consider when deciding what one can publish I had to breeze through.

Tomorrow, we will take a quick “quiz” on the famous journalist presentations and submit our audience/self evaluation notes with it. I will check in the ethics notes tomorrow as well.

On Wednesday, we used this worksheet to figure out the ethical considerations for publishing hypothetical stories. We will go over it and share on Thursday.
