Division, Denial & Journalism Ethics
Keynote Conversation with Justin Gill and Deep Divides: bridging the gap with ethical journalism
The keynote conversation with Justin Gillis asked how science writers can accurately convey both uncertainty about research and certainty about scientific consensus.
“Deep divides: Bridging the gap with ethical journalism” explored several current news stories with an eye to the ethical issues involved and will consider options for how to address them in ways that could help bridge divides among news consumers.
Denial: Your truth and mine
“Denial: Your Truth and Mine” considered the routines and incentives of journalists and the psychology of the audience that grows conspiracies, values the wisdom of the mob over expert knowledge, and limits public debate on policies.
Solutions: is there a future for deliberation?
“Solutions: Is there a future for deliberation” asked what journalists can do to represent diverse views in public debate, restore a common set of facts as the basis for discourse, build trust and aid citizens in being a self-governing democracy.
