Whose Story Is It?
6 days ago
Over the past several years, we've seen the journalism world take a hard look at itself. Reporters and documentary-makers have had to confront the relationship between cold, hard facts and the push to make compelling stories linger long after they’re heard.
Kelly McBride of the Poynter Institute moderated a panel at the 2012 Third Coast Conference to address the ethical dilemmas that pop up for journalists when producing stories. She was joined by Matt Thompson, now the deputy editor at The Atlantic, and documentarian Alex Kotlowitz. Together they discussed the common, shared ethical values of reporting and whether those values are absolute or if they can be bent. Recorded at the 2012 Third Coast Conference.
Note: This session features a clip from Alex’s film, The Interrupters. You can watch it here: http://bit.ly/Pocket33
