Romenesko Letters |
On Friday's final PBS newscast carrying the name "The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer," the anchor listed guidelines for what he called MacNeil/Lehrer journalism. "They're worth sharing with everyone," writes Gene Krzyzynski. A few of them:
* Cover, write and present every story with the care I would want if the story were about me.
* Assume there is at least one other side or version to every story.
* Assume the viewer is as smart and as caring and as good a person as I am. Assume the same about all people on whom I report. || Video from Friday's newscast.
