Again, our goal for the conference is to create a new set of Guiding Principles for Journalists that will reflect the new journalism values of the world in which we live. We need to elevate the values of transparency, intellectual honesty and authenticity, while refocusing our traditional values for a broader audience. We need to create a document that more explicitly connects the values of journalism to a democratic society.
To that end, we are already working with a handful of today’s best writers and thinkers who frequently address the issues of modern journalism ethics, including Clay Shirky, Emily Bell, danah boyd, Ann Friedman. Rob King, Monica Guzman, Dan Gillmor and Eric Deggans. These writers and several others are each crafting an essay on a specific ethics challenge today’s journalists face. They will be present at the symposium, where we will review and challenge their ideas in a robust discussion format.
The resulting book will be co-edited by Kelly McBride, Poynter’s Senior Ethics Faculty, and Tom Rosenstiel, founder and director of Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism.
