“Ethical journalism ensures that phone hacking scandals are not repeated.” Peter Horrocks.
Journalism is producing truth-seeking stories in the public interest based on data.With the rise of social media we need a way to make the news, not just rehash it.While using the tools of science for data journalism, it’s key to abandon the jargon of science (in reporting).
Presentations by Jude Mathurine, New Media Lecturer , Rhodes University and Chaacha Mwita, Thomson Foundation
I thoroughly enjoyed this session, as it addressed matters of media management, and managing the managers, with the Nation Media Group cited as a case study. The session was followed by the launch of a book with the same title: Media Management in the New Age: How Managers Lead Media in Eastern and Southern Africa that I highly recommend to the practitioners in this space. The tweets curated here are highlights. More on these presentations available in the aforementioned book.
