This site is a place to capture thoughts and ideas from the Maestro conference calls hosted by Journalism That Matters. Our inaugural call is
Sept. 25: Rewarding the Truth: Facts, Fibs and Accountability in Political Reporting
What will it take to increase the rewards for telling the truth in politics?
In a test of a unique collaboration technology, Journalism That Matters (JTM) will create the platform for a 90-minute, solutions-based discussion of that question with a public teleconference, “Rewarding the Truth: Facts, Fibs and Accountability in Political Reporting.” Among participants will be political press analyst Justin Peters of the Columbia Journalism Review.
Anyone can participate for free by registering in advance for the phone-in event, which will run from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. (EDT) on Tues., Sept. 25. Journalism students from Elon University, the University of Nevada-Reno and the Missouri School of Journalism will be among participants.
