The number of race-related violent incidents, police-involved shootings, and immigration reform protests has amplified in recent months. Local journalists have unique relationships with their communities, and their reporters are often on the frontlines as first informers, reporting on these stories as they unfold. By presenting clear examples of how incidents were covered at Standing Rock, comparable and contrasting ideas will be examined in recent coverage of the violence that stemmed from Charlottesville, Virginia and the recent pardoning of Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, to name a few examples -- in an effort to raise questions about how should reporters be prepared to write responsibly about these volatile situations?How do strong community relationships benefit local news outlets and reporters? How does social media influence real-time reporting from the frontlines? Join award-winning journalist, Jenni Monet for a discussion about reporting on racially sensitive stories.
