Don't just be the first to break local news - ensure that your readers get credible stories. Learn best practices in managing tough decisions when publishing breaking news via online or mobile. Confront issues of credibility and ethics. Know the importance of aligning your newsroom’s standards with the expectations of your readers. And understand how digital delivery affects traditional news standards and values, and how to manage your newsroom moving forward.

Editor of the Sioux City Journal, Mitch Pugh, will discuss the results of the APME Online Credibility Project and the Sioux City Journal: Breaking News Without Breaking Trust. He'll explain why and how the Sioux City Journal developed an ethics policy devoted to breaking news, and guide you to create your own.



Participants will learn:
  • How to identify credibility and ethical issues editors grapple with in breaking news situations
  • How to explore issues that might crop up in a real-life breaking news situation
  • Learn about the kind of decision making online breaking news require
  • Learn what kind of critical questions you need to answer in order to create your own online breaking news policy
