A range of voices from campaign season and the early months of the Trump administration have all been critical of the news media. We convened a panel at the University of Denver to answer questions about the ethics and dilemmas journalists face these days.
Adrian Florido is a reporter for Code Switch, an NPR team that covers race, identity and culture. Kelley Griffin is vice president of news for Colorado Public Radio. Elizabeth Jensen is NPR’s ombudsman -- she prefers the term public editor and serves as a liaison from NPR to the public. Mark Memmott is NPR’s editor for standards and practices helps set and interpret the network’s ethics policies. And Bob Steele was longtime head of the ethics program at journalism’s premier think tank, the Poynter institute. He edited NPR’s ethics guidebook. He now lives in the Denver area, where he’s a member of CPR’s board of directors.
If you were in the audience, but had a question we couldn't get to, text the word ETHICS to 720-358-4029 and you’ll open a channel of communication with us at CPR, where you can ask your follow-up questions.
