When sharing any information with the public, a journalist should seek to:
- Verify the information (either to “stand it up” or “knock it down”)
- Attribute the source of the information
- Inform the audience if the information is false or contradicts other sources of information
In the process of verification, a journalist should:
- Never add anything that was not there.
- Never deceive the audience.
- Be transparent about your methods and motives.
- Rely on your own original reporting.
- Exercise humility.
