The Society of American Business Editors and Writers, better known as SABEW, is hosting a hour-long teletraining on Monday, June 17, 2013, that bloggers should consider making time for.
Ethics in a New Media World is a panel discussion exploring how to apply traditional journalism ethics to the new media landscape. Even if you don’t consider your blog a traditional news site, thinking about the ethics of what you put online, where and how is a worthwhile way to start the week. And remember, the BLS lumps bloggers under the occupational label Reporters, Correspondents and Broadcast News Analysts indicating they are giving you the same level of scrutiny as journalists working for the Wall Street Journal, Time or CNN.
The SABEW panel includes:
- Kent Zales, an AOL Huffington Post Media Group blog editor who recently contributed to the ebook Telling the Truth and Nothing But about plargiarism and fabrication from the American Copy Editors Society.
- Thomas Kent, the AP’s (Associated Press) standards editor and an international media ethics lecturer.
- Jan Leach, an associate professor at Kent State University’s School of Journalism and MAss Communications.
The discussion will be moderated by Kevin Z. Smith, the chairman of the Society of Professional Journalist’s Ethics Committee.
The 60-minute teletraining session is free for SABEW members. Although attendees will not be about to interact with panelists during the discussion they are invited to submit questions ahead of time. Questions submitted prior to the session will be included at the discretion of the moderator.
What are you waiting for? Register today! The SABEW discussion of Ethics in a New Media World begins at 2 p.m. (EDT) on Monday, June 17, 2013.
