An Open Letter to Arianna Huffington
How the Huffington Post is still blowing it on science but has a chance to make a real difference
Voice of San Diego: New Reporter Guidelines.
We only do something if we can do it better than anyone or if no one else is doing it.* We must add value. We must be unique.
Three things to remember for each story:* Context
* Not just what is happening, but what it means
There is no such thing as objectivity.* There is such thing as fairness.
* But everyone sees everything through their own filter. Acknowledge that, let it liberate you. Let it regulate you.
* We are not guided by political identification, by ideology or dogma. But every decision we make, from what to cover to how to cover it, is made through our own subjective judgments.
* We are guided by an ability to be transparent and independent, to clearly assess what’s going on in our community and have the courage to plainly state the truth.
