Journalism in a Time of Disruption 
SABEW’s 56th annual Spring conference will explore the many challenges – and opportunities – our industry faces today. Through skills session, keynotes and networking, we’ll help reporters and news managers do their jobs better and make sense of what’s happening in our industry. We look forward to seeing you at ASU’s casual campus setting in sunny Phoenix where you’ll get a chance to connect with colleagues old and new and ensure that business journalism continues to thrive.

Fact-Checking: How to Figure Out What's Right and Wrong

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

These days, politicians, business executives and even some media members are playing loose with the facts. Many people are fine with making up falsehoods and outright lies, while others don't bother checking to see if what they Tweet or post is true. With so many questionable facts now living forever online, our jobs have become that much harder. How can we tell if what someone is saying to us is right? How do we fact-check in real-time? How do we make sure we're not spreading incorrect facts online? Should we be fact-checking others on Twitter? At one time you could assume that our sources were being truthful, but that's not always the case anymore. This panel will look at how journalists can fact from fiction when reporting.

This session is offered in memory of former SABEW President Gary Klott, who died in August 2002. He spent considerable time educating members about ethical decision-making for journalists. The Klott ethics session is produced annually in his honor.

This session is sponsored by National Public Radio.
