This one-session, three-hour class will explore “when good news reporting goes bad.” The unfortunate truth is that sometimes reporters will stretch the truth, lie, fabricate evidence, straight-up plagiarize or do other unethical acts in an effort to stand out above the crowd. In this class, award-winning reporter and NeighborMedia Coordinator Frank Morris will take a look at some cases of unethical news reporting that have made headlines, and teach aspiring journalists what to do and what not to do if they wish to be a trusted and reliable source for news. Instructor: Frank Morris
