Journalism Accelerator, Kent State University, the Poynter Institute, and the Civic Commons have partnered to answer a number of questions that digital journalists face when covering politics. They are crowdsourcing answers to the questions below, and will be compiling the answers in an Ethics Best Practices Guide to Political Coverage.
What happens when social media and political coverage collide? How do you handle the challenges of “access journalism” like requests for quote approval? How can journalists keep politicians honest? Could a different approach to reporting improve the flow of information to voters?
Join the conversation on the Journalism Accelerator website.
