Ensure your newsroom is prepared by planning ahead, even – especially – for the kinds of situations we hope never to see.
The RTDNA Ethics Committee will guide your newsroom in developing your coverage plan for these catastrophic events by illustrating its recently published coverage guidelines including:
- How to ensure your own and others’ safety on a scene.
- How to apply our Code of Ethics’ guiding principles of accuracy and transparency when much is unknown or uncertain.
- How to put information in the appropriate context.
- How to avoid the contagion effect.
