APME’s Online Journalism Credibility Project enlisted six newsrooms around North America to create or further develop online policies and practices supporting excellence in journalism while also tapping the Web’s potential for public involvement.
The project was funded through grants from the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation and APME Foundation, and also was supported by the Center for Advanced Social Research at the Reynolds Journalism Institute, University of Missouri, and the Poynter Institute’s NewsU.
The goal of the Online Journalism Credibility Project was to help newsrooms create standards and new and better policies and practices in the rich and expanding world of news coverage online.
