Blogging Conference @ Ohio Univeristy

Journalists to Debate Ethics of Blogging, Online News at Ohio University

ATHENS, Ohio – Bloggers and online journalists have grabbed the spotlight for reporting on breaking news – including political scandal – ahead of traditional journalism outlets such as newspapers and television stations. But what are the ethical issues at stake in this new reporting environment?

That’s the question dozens of journalists and scholars will discuss at the first conference focused exclusively on the ethics of blogging and online journalism. The conference, to be held April 7 – 8 at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, will jumpstart a dialog about the issue among professional reporters, college students and academics who study journalism trends and ethics.
