2017 SPJ Pro Chapters of the Year named at Opening Business Session

by @ SPJ News

Contacts:
Chrystal Parvin, SPJ Membership Coordinator, (317) 361-4132, cparvin@spj.org
Anna Gutierrez, SPJ Communications Coordinator, (317) 920-4785, agutierrez@spj.org

ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Society of Professional Journalists annually selects professional chapters to honor for their commitment to SPJ’s mission and the profession of journalism.

Large Chapter of the Year is open to chapters with 75 or more members and Small Chapter of the Year is open to chapters with fewer than 75 members.

Large Chapter of the Year

The Florida Pro chapter is honored as the Large Chapter of the Year for the second consecutive year for their dedication to education and continued commitment to the mission of the Society.

Florida hosted five major programs that, judges said, went beyond simple panel discussions. It offered national grants to other chapters and journalists who wanted to host events. The Drone Tour covered five states and received a matching SDX grant. The Femme Freelance Fest – hosted by and for women – ranged on topics from contracts to copyright, and happened before the end of the fiscal year. The chapter matched 80 freelancers with 16 employers. The Fake News Game Show was accepted as a featured program at the nation’s largest college media convention in Dallas this October.

Florida was also the only chapter to have multiple sessions accepted at EIJ and launched the Student Chapter Development network to support and help create campus chapters in Florida. To put it simply, this chapter did a lot, and did it well.

The finalist for Large Chapter of the year is Minnesota Pro.

Small Chapter of the Year

The Cincinnati Pro Chapter was named the Small Chapter of the Year for the second year in a row for its dedication to involvement, awards and diversity events.

This is the third time the Cincinnati chapter has won this designation in the past four years because it continues to offer robust and relevant programming for members.

Cincinnati Pro made an effort to get involved in the community. The chapter hosted three post-election events that attracted 160 people, including 12 high school students. It hosted a debate between three candidates running for Cincinnati mayor, with an audience of 125 people.

The chapter also worked to provide training and support for members. Cincinnati Pro hosted sessions with journalists to teach them how to use the new Cincinnati Police Department online records request portal. It also hosted 10 “Lunch with the Pros” sessions by sending working journalists to the University of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky University, in addition to supporting two UC internship programs and a Kentucky Press Association event for students. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Cincinnati Pro chapter.

The finalists for Small Chapter of the Year are Bluegrass Pro and Las Vegas Pro.

SPJ promotes the free flow of information vital to informing citizens; works to inspire and educate the next generation of journalists; and fights to protect First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and press. Support excellent journalism and fight for your right to know. Become a member, give to the Legal Defense Fund, or give to the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation.

Ethics: Clarifying terrifying terms

by @ SPJ - Quill Headlines

Ricky John Best, Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche and Micah David-Cole Fletcher were stabbed May 26 when they attempted to stop a man from harassing two teens with racist and anti-Muslim rants on a train in Portland, Oregon. Best and Namkai-Meche died.

A lot of the attention on social media following the attack centered on the news media’s use or avoidance of the word “terrorism” in discussing the events. People rightly pointed out that media organizations are quick to bring up the words “terro...

Details on the governance structure update

by @ SPJ Leads

"It's a huge responsibility to be trusted to tell someone's story," - Kristen Cook, in her resignation letter to the Arizona Daily Star.  

WHAT'S HAPPENING

Underreporting in rural areas is a nationwide phenomenon. SPJ member Al Cross says this is a problem because rural reporting is rarely seen as the most critical mission. 20 percent of the nation's population lives in rural areas, so not having anyone to cover government meetings or hold officials accountable can cause bigger problems.

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma really showed the power of local journalists as the eyes and ears of the community. That's why Google News announced a new focus on hyperlocal and community news with a feature called Community Updates.

Report for America aims to place 1,000 journalists in local newsrooms in the next five years. This program is similar to organizations like Teach for America. Report for America doesn't get government funding, but it is being treated as a national service project.

A recent survey, conducted by the Annenberg Public Policy Center, shows that 37 percent of those surveyed can't name any of the rights guaranteed under the First Amendment.

ETHICS ESSENTIALS

SPJ Ethics Chairman Andrew Seaman writes about terrifying terms in the latest edition of Quill. "The inconsistency of their uses, their vagueness and their divisiveness should make journalists and news organizations question their use of the words 'terrorism' and 'terrorist."' Seaman says the purpose of journalism is to provide people with accurate, reliable, truthful information, but there is a problem if people spend most of their time debating words, or misuse of words, in that reporting.

The Victoria Advocate, a locally- and family-owned newspaper whose journalists reported on Hurricane Harvey before, during and after the storm, created a GoFundMe to help raise funds for their employees in need. Any money raised will go into newspaper's Helping Hands fund to be distributed to employees in the most need.

SPJ QUICK FIX

Here's a look at the nine resolutions passed at EIJ 2017.

By fall of 2019, SPJ's national board will shrink from 23 members to nine - thanks to Society delegates passing bylaws amendments during EIJ17.

How to help with Hurricane Irma

by @ SPJ Leads

"Journalists are public servants who aren't on the public payroll but are performing a public service every single day." - Rebecca Baker, SPJ President 2017-2018

WHAT'S HAPPENING

Snapchat is now including four student newspapers - The Daily Californian at the University of California at Berkeley, The Battalion at Texas A&M, The Daily Orange at Syracuse University and the Badger Herald at the University of Wisconsin at Madison - in its Discover feature. The weekly stories resemble other content published by The New York Times, CNN, Cosmopolitan and other media organizations in the Discover tab.

Time Editor-in-Chief Nancy Gibbs, who rose through the ranks over three decades from her start as a fact-checker to become the first female top editor of the century-old publication, is stepping down.

Student reporters in North Carolina were kicked out of an "open" student government meeting. After the meeting, Technician editors contacted the Student Press Law Center and the North Carolina Press Association for help. The editor-in-chief said, "If they continue doing this, what's to stop them from keeping us out of senate meetings or executive meetings or calling us and saying, 'Hey, don't run this in your newspaper,' or something like that? That's not a precedent that I want to set."

Journalists are having trouble reporting on health care under the Trump administration because of lack of information and insufficient responses if they do get answers. SPJ member Kathryn Foxhall said "I don't see the administrations ever stopping what they are doing, unless we as journalists pull out all stops and call it the censorship that it is."

Hurricane Irma

—While Florida businesses were evacuating before Irma, newsrooms were debating whether to stay or not to stay. Here's how Florida's newsrooms covered Irma.
—Check out Hurricane Irma, as told by the front pages of Florida news outlets. Now that the storm has passed, Florida begins work on recovery.
—These tools and sites were the most useful to reporters during Irma.
—As Irma barreled through Florida, a debate over TV storm reporting surfaced.
—The Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma has a helpful  guide for reporters about what to do before, during and after a hurricane.

We're thankful for the journalists who sacrifice and risk their safety to provide coverage and information about the storm. Does your newsroom need assistance?  Let us know.

GIVE A LITTLE

Here are ways you can help people impacted by Hurricane Irma. Here are some specific organizations that are leading relief efforts in Miami-Dade County, the Florida Keys and Southwest Florida.

#CommCares

The Valenti School of Communication at the University of Houston has created an emergency scholarship fund for their communication students. Almost all of the 2,000 students have to work part-time to support their education, now much more difficult in dealing with Hurricane Harvey aftermath. 100 percent of all donations will be used for students in need.  You can donate here.

ETHICS ESSENTIALS

When covering natural disasters - like Hurricanes Harvey and Irma - SPJ is often asked whether journalism ethics are different in emergencies. The answer is no. SPJ Ethics Chairman Andrew Seaman says, "Journalists - especially during emergencies and breaking news - should keep its tenets in mind." Read more from Seaman about reporting on disasters.

Time for another new site.

by @ Jason Early | Chicago Designer, Strategist, User Expereince Designer (UX), and Educator.

Well it’s time for a site update. For this iteration I wanted to try out Jekyll and see if I can force myself to write more. For now the whole site is pretty vanilla. Default styles from Bootstrap and Jekyll, with a focus on “just getting things to work”. I spent a day over the weekend building and testing so I’m sure there are some kinks to work out yet. As for now though, it works.

Another focus for the site is to try out some modern front-end frameworks. I’ve spent a lot of time over the last few weeks exploring Yeoman, Grunt, Bower and AngularJS. There’s more to say about these in future articles but it’s been great getting my hands dirty in code again.

So for now this is it. A new site/sandbox to play in and test out ideas.

Best practices for covering a mass shooting

by @ SPJ Leads

"It's important that parents and citizens really lobby for media literacy to be taught in schools, starting with kindergarten. We're doing our students a real disservice if we don't teach them to become critical consumers of the media." — Jean Kilbourne, author and speaker. 

WHAT'S HAPPENING

From live blogs to mobile alerts, some journalists are saying it might be time to rethink standard articles for live coverage and breaking news with different approaches to providing information.

All kinds of local reporting -- from day-to-day city hall coverage to world-changing investigations like in "Spotlight" -- is faced with extinction. In her latest column, Margaret Sullivan writes about how the local news crisis is only getting worse.

SPJ Ethics Committee Chairman Andrew Seaman says Puerto Rico's situation is not up for debate. In his latest blog post, Seaman reminds journalists to give voice to the voiceless: "Transmit the devastation. Talk to residents, first responders, doctors and anyone else who is able to articulate what their daily lives are like in the wake of the hurricane."

In light of St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Mike Faulk's arrest last week, media lawyers and news executives give some advice about how news organizations can defend journalists who are attacked or arrested while covering news.

ETHICS ESSENTIALS

SPJ Ethics Committee Chairman Andrew Seaman speaks with CNN's Brian Stelter about the ethics of news organizations reporting claims of responsibility in the wake of mass shootings and attacks. He says journalists and news organizations should report what is known, what isn't known and what is known to be false information, and shun any type of speculation.

"In several occasions in conversation with my female friends - some working in the field of journalism and some with careers in a variety of sectors as well - a common concern always comes out in the talk: the feeling that, as women, we have to prove more than men that we are capable of the work we are doing."

Merci pour cet article. C'est à peu près ce que je suis obligé de marteler à l'agence quand une équipe e-merch arrive triomphalement à vendre un moteur de facettes ... sans même avoir tenu compte du SEO. La précaution la plus sage est dans ce cas bien sur de bloquer le crawl des facettes (je dis bien crawl) pour ne pas se retrouver avec un bot trap qui pénaliserait tout le site. Si après on veut exploiter les facettes sur plus d'un niveau ou plus d'une combinaison, les complications arrivent et il faut vraiment y passer un temps considérable pour savoir quelles combinaisons autoriser à l'exploration et quelles combinaisons exclure. C'est certainement le sujet le plus passionnant et le plus touchy en matière de structure interne :)

Autonomy is part of the appeal of freelancing. As independent journalists, we work with editors as our clients, not our supervisors. We choose our projects and set our own schedules. We may or may not work in our pajamas, or from a lawn chair in the backyard. We’re our own bosses.

But sometimes, that means bossing yourself around.

Resolutions passed at Excellence in Journalism 2017

by @ SPJ News

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sept. 15, 2017

Contact:
Rebecca Baker, SPJ National President, 203-640-3904, rebecca.baker.ny@gmail.com
Jennifer Royer, SPJ Communications Strategist, 317-361-4134, jroyer@spj.org

ANAHEIM, Calif. – Each year, Society of Professional Journalists delegates vote on resolutions submitted by members on topics of importance to the society. These resolutions are voted on by delegates during the closing business session at the Excellence in Journalism annual conference.

Here are the resolutions that were approved during EIJ17 in Anaheim, Calif.:

Resolution No. 1
The Trump Administration and the Press
Submitted by Resolutions Committee
Delegate Action: Approved


WHEREAS the role of the news media in a democratic society requires journalists to question authority and hold the powerful accountable to the people;

WHEREAS journalists and media organizations routinely reported on actions of previous presidents, including Barack Obama and George W. Bush, that put them in unflattering lights and drew criticism of their administrations from editorial writers and opinion columnists;

WHEREAS President Donald J. Trump has described the news media as an “enemy of the people” and has said journalists “don’t like their country”;

WHEREAS the president and members of his administration persistently characterize members of the media as dishonest and crooked;

WHEREAS as recently as September 3, 2017, the president’s Environmental Protection Agency personally attacked the credibility of reporters for the Associated Press;

WHEREAS the president and several of his advisers use pejorative descriptions of journalists and news media to undermine the legitimacy of the press and its role in civil, democratic society;

WHEREAS demagogues throughout modern history have worked first to destroy the credibility of news media to enhance their power and execute their agendas;

WHEREAS, nevertheless, SPJ has clearly stated in previous resolutions its concerns regarding the harm done by restrictions on access, including mandates that reporters always go through PIOs;

WHEREAS former SPJ president and Kennesaw State University professor Carolyn Carlson has conducted, with SPJ’s sponsorship, seven surveys over five years that show “Censorship by PIO” has become pervasive;

WHEREAS these restrictions on access pose a grave risk to the public welfare;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED the Society of Professional Journalists, meeting in convention in Anaheim, California, on September 9, 2017, calls on journalists to put the public’s need to know above the professional desire not to anger official sources.

WHEREAS North Dakota expanded the protections of its 2015 free student press law by enacting another law adding protection for student media advisers from retaliation;

WHEREAS the 2017 legislative action in these states followed similar laws in Illinois and Maryland and brought to 13 the number of states with statutes or education codes that protect student journalists’ right of free expression;

WHEREAS these victories could not have been accomplished without the organizing and legal expertise of the Student Press Law Center and its grassroots volunteers;

WHEREAS he has performed wonderfully (and sweat-ily) in a gorilla suit for the sake of Day of Giving;

Drone journalism ethics

by @ SPJ Leads

"But no country can have good government, or a healthy public square, without high-quality journalism - journalism that can distinguish a fact from a belief and again from an opinion; that understands that the purpose of opinion isn't to depart from facts but to use them as a bridge to a larger idea called 'truth;' and that appreciates that truth is a large enough destination that, like Manhattan, it can be reached by many bridges of radically different designs. In other words, journalism that is grounded in facts while abounding in disagreements." - Bret Stephens, columnist for The New York Times, while speaking at a journalism awards dinner in Sydney, Australia

WHAT'S HAPPENING

Here's how different networks handled President Donald Trump's comments and tweets urging NFL owners to fire players who do not stand for the national anthem.

A new project at Georgetown University, launched with the support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, is documenting and analyzing incidents around the United States in which free speech is being challenged. It's called The Free Speech Project.

The New York Times' sponsor a subscription program has provided free NYT access to more than 2 million students in more than 3,000 public schools across the U.S.

The John. S. and James L. Knight foundation announced an initiative to support the role of strong, trusted journalism as essential to a healthy democracy. Seven projects under the new Trust, Media and Democracy initiative will bring communities and journalists together to create long-term solutions to combat misinformation.

With advertising revenue declining, prominent editors stepping down and major publications being put on the market, former editors say magazines are about as useful as vinyl records and sailboats.

ETHICS ESSENTIALS

Poynter put together a code of ethics specifically for drone journalists that takes journalism and photojournalism ethics into account. It also adds legal considerations and safety concerns that come with flying drones. Check it out.

Just two months after getting out of San Quentin prison, Arnulfo Garcia, SPJ member and former editor-in-chief of the award-winning inmate-run newspaper the San Quentin News, was killed Saturday in a car crash.

Mike Faulk was covering a protest when he was knocked to the ground and pinned by a police officer. With a boot to his head, he was pepper-sprayed, arrested, held overnight in jail and has been charged with "failure to disperse." The St. Louis Society of Professional Journalists condemns his arrest and calls for the immediate dismissal of charges against Mike Faulk, and for an investigation into the events of this weekend to determine whether officers violated the Constitutional rights of Faulk or those of any other citizens. Read more from St. Louis SPJ here.

Vermont State Police introduced a new press release policy that essentially lets state troopers determine what is and isn't news. SPJ New England Chapter responded with a statement, saying this is troubling. They asked police to invite the press to be a part of the current redrafting of the policy. "Information on crime, sexual assault, armed robberies and arson are in the public's interest, and law enforcement should be working with reporters to divulge said information to the public, not hinder it."

Myrto Papadopoulous explains how the art of storytelling helped her explore life and herself as a documentary photographer in the latest #PressFreedomMatters post.

SPJ President starts #FreePressFriday

by @ SPJ Leads

"But if I were still here I would tell you that I wish I had done more work as a news reporter. Written better stories. Made more and better contacts. Skipped some of the easier pieces and done more in-depth stories. Spent more time on foreign stories. Been a better editor." - Mark Mooney, who died Oct. 6, wrote in his last byline

WHAT'S HAPPENING

"No algorithm of reporting is more enduring and productive than the Fives W's: Who, What, Where, When and Why. None of those is harder to answer than the Why." Roy Peter Clark writes about journalists' struggle to answer the hardest question, especially when reporting on mass shootings.

Newsrooms around the world aren't as digital-first minded as they'd like to be, according to a new International Center for Journalists report. There's disconnect between training opportunities organizations offer versus what journalists say they want, and people with digital-focused titles make up only 18 percent of newsrooms.

Some journalism schools are adding social media, curation and analytics to editing classes. Experts say these assignments expand traditional editing skills and help students recognize the importance of understanding audiences and delivery platforms.

What is the pivot to video costing the journalism industry? Are too many publishers chasing shiny objects instead of creating cohesive video strategies? CJR takes a look at four reasons the pivot to video has failed.

ETHICS ESSENTIALS

SPJ Ethics Committee member Alex Veeneman writes about the role of video footage when covering mass shootings like the one in Las Vegas last week. "On one hand, the footage underscores the gravity of the situation and emphasizes the scale of what happened Sunday night. On the other hand, the repetition of such videos can be seen as sensationalism - a way to utilize drama and to encourage viewers to stay tuned to the broadcast." Veeneman says striking the right balance between the necessary and the excess is tricky.

Joining Bloc

by @ Jason Early | Chicago Designer, Strategist, User Expereince Designer (UX), and Educator.

It’s been almost a year since I last touched this site, which means it worked.

Last year at this time I was looking for new opportunities. I was and am still running my design practice, but I was in a lull. Work was slowing, I was getting concerned with finances and was just looking to do something else for a while to rest mentally from all that goes into running a single person business.

Well it worked. In the past 10 months I’d joined a company, learned a whole lot about an industry I had never experienced and worked with a great group of talented developers. I was pretty heads down working though.

Today I’m getting back into mentoring and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I’ve joined Bloc.io to mentor students participating in their UX Design Apprenticeship.

It’s a very thorough UX course that really aligns with ideas I’m had about modern education for a while now and I’m really looking forward to mentoring again.
