Media Ethics Team Building

This one-hour enrichment program introduces principles of ethical journalism to your team and gets them debating how media cover today’s stories.

The press may be free, but is it a free-for-all? Is it OK to clean up a quote, or go on air without knowing the entire story? Using real-life case studies, your team debates how to apply these principles and experiences the decision-making process that goes on behind-the-scenes in journalism. Participants learn to express and respect different viewpoints, all while becoming more informed media consumers.
