Ethics panel pulls in 90
On Thursday, Oct. 25, Hofstra University and PCLI hosted a panel discussion on “The Ethics of Reporting Crime Stories.” The two-hour evening event, held in the University’s Axinn Library, attracted 90 attendees, primarily journalism students, but with a good showing of PCLI members.
Carolyn James of the Massapequa Post (and the Hofstra faculty) moderated the discussion, which explored how stories from the police blotter and the courtroom are reported, including the ethics involved.
The panel included journalists Greg Cergol from WNBC, Kieran Crowley from the New York Post, Rosemary McManus from Newsday, Richard Weir from the Daily News and Nicole Sequino of Car and Travel magaView Blogzine, a former court reporter and Hofstra journalism graduate.
