Journalists, Letís Not Get Checkmated
Scum. Liars. Disgusting. Corrupt. All words the public and journalists heard during what could very well be the most divisive election we've ever seen. While the U.S. presidential race may be over, the wounds are still healing. And while President-elect Donald Trump seems to be softening on ...

From the President
Wow! My first column as president of the Society of Professional Journalists. I would be lying if I said I wasnít a little nervous and a lot excited. But mostly I am grateful and honored to serve you and have an opportunity to be a representative voice for journalists. I caught the journalism ...

Ten with Marty Baron
Marty Baron took over as editor-in-chief of the Boston Globe at a time before the internet significantly changed the business and distribution of journalism. His pushing of the Globeís now-famous Spotlight team to deeply pursue the intuitional corruption of the Catholic Churchís clergy sex abuse ...

Member Profile: George Daniels

Looking back, he recalls the names of several mentors who helped him develop from high school on to college and in his career.

Words & Language Toolbox

Narrative Writing Toolbox
From time to time I receive emails from young journalists who want to eventually move into feature reporting, but they find themselves on a beat where they tell me they have no chance to work on storytelling skills. My first gig was at a weekly newspaper where I covered four small towns. At my next ...

Freelance Toolbox
I recently decided to become a full-time freelance journalist after working in the field part time over the past few years. As a full-time doctoral student, I knew I needed to do something that allowed for a flexible schedule and fulfilled my academic needs as well. Freelancing seemed like a sound ...

Ethics Toolbox
The SPJ Ethics Committee handles a lot of issues that, as expected, involve news outlets representing all kinds of media. What may surprise some people is that we also deal with a lot of issues involving non-fiction books. These issues often involve works that could be classified as creative non-fiction. Gay ...

Education Toolbox
On a warm summer night, Iím volunteering at the check-in desk at a community event. During a lull, I chat with a fellow volunteer. As often happens, the topic turns to work. After learning Iím a professor, he asks what I teach. ďJournalism,Ē I said. ďIím sorry,Ē he replied. How many of you ...

Digital Media Toolbox
In June, the New York Times Magazine published a 10,000-word article by Nikole Hannah-Jones about segregated schools in New York City. Those who read the article online or on mobile devices may have noticed a subtle multimedia element buried halfway through the content: a graphic showing the shifting ...
