From social media to late-breaking stories to claims of “fake news” and the search for credible sources, these are exciting, challenging and unusual times in journalism. A.wordsmith and PRSA Oregon are proud to team up for our September “Like a Boss” Coffee Chat on media ethics and engagement. Our conversation will dive into newsroom processes, how digital content can be a friend and a foe, and the pressures reporters are under to uncover and present great stories, while maintaining their editorial integrity.
