The Alabama Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (of which I am currently president) is pleased to announce a panel discussion on journalism ethics to be held Tuesday, April 13 at The Birmingham News.
Organizing this panel was my first major effort as POTAPCOSPJ (President of the Alabama Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists), and the panel should be excellent if I do say so myself.
The participants will be:
Tanya Ott: News director for WBHM Birmingham, 90.3 FM.
The moderator will be Chris Roberts, assistant professor in journalism at the University of Alabama.
Roberts is about to release a book on journalism ethics, so he should have a lot of thought-provoking questions for the panel.
I'll be there as well to make a brief opening statement, and if you're at all interested in the ethics of modern journalism, you should be there too.
Journalism serves an important role in any democracy, and if you want to speak to the people who make it happen, come out and let your voice be heard.
UPDATE: We made this an event on Facebook, so if you plan on attending, RSVP yes.
