Tough Calls: Ethical Decision-Making for Business Journalists

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

During this interactive session, we will walk through real ethical issues facing today's business journalists. Panelists Janet Guyon, a freelance editor who recently left TheStreet; Glenn Coleman, executive editor, CBS MoneyWatch; and Brian Moss, Reuters will grapple with dilemmas using hypothetical scenarios, and audience members will be able to weigh in with their thoughts and questions. Topics will include use of social media, balancing journalism values with business pressures, and issues of journalism independence such as sponsored content.

This session, historically one of the most popular and thought-provoking at each spring conference, aims to help attendees be better-prepared to evaluate their choices when they confront real-life tough calls of their own.

Offered in memory of former SABEW President Gary Klott, who died in 2003. He spent considerable time educating members on proper ethical conduct. Seminars have been done annually in his honor.
