Session 3: Covering Law Enforcement: Being fair and holding accountable
NBA members are encouraged to join this three-part series of “Timely Tips and Coaching for Real World Journalism” webinars with highly acclaimed industry trainer Kevin Benz. All three webinars will begin at 10:30am Central time and will be archived for later viewing.
Law enforcement dominates the day-to-day work of journalists and we must remember there is no more powerful government agency in the daily life of our audience. It is journalism’s highest obligation to hold law enforcement accountable for the enormous power society gives them. The relationship between the press and the police is complicated — we must be fair, we must be courageous and we must be independent. Here’s how.
These webinars are being presented in partnership with the state broadcasters associations of Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming. For more details and webinar access, contact Jim Timm at firstname.lastname@example.org.
