Facebook Live: News Roundup – NWPB’s Approach To Ethical Reporting


NWPB covers a wide range of stories for the Northwest, from tragic to uplifting. Each story means something to us, and a lot of thought goes into how we report the news to you. Scott Leadingham, NWPB News Manager, talks us through that process and sheds light on the tough ethical decisions made in the newsroom during breaking news situations. As he reminds: “Journalism ethics” is not an oxymoron.  (For more, see the Society of Professional Journalists’ Code of Ethics.)

You can always send a note to our news department with any and all of your questions/concerns. Simply email [email protected]. Or interact on Twitter: @NWPBroadcasting. Of course, on Facebook, too.

Join us every Friday at noon for our weekly news round table
