Truth-Telling Strategies for Journalists:
a four-part email series from the
American Press Institute

As we approach the 2020 presidential election amid a public health crisis and ongoing civil unrest, reporters must be able to navigate a media landscape filled with misinformation and polarization.

We’ve created a four-part email series that highlights four key skills for doing so. In four short emails sent over the course of a month, you’ll learn tips to:
  • avoid amplifying lies and misleading claims in your reporting
  • handle quotes that haven’t been verified
  • identify misinformation around breaking news and thwart attempts at media manipulation
  • make stories less polarizing.
This email series is based on the American Press Institute report “Getting it Right: Strategies for truth-telling in a time of misinformation and polarization.”
