DFM chat on the lessons of the Oakland Tribune's 'Hotspot' project
Today we have a special chat. It will feature Oakland Tribune Violence Reporting Fellow Scott Johnson and will be moderated by Martin J. Reynolds, senior editor of the Community Engagement Bay Area News Group.
Among the topics to be covered:
1) How does prolific crime coverage impact a community's perception of itself?
2) How does the decrease of non-crime neighborhood coverage impact how we are seen by the community?
3) Are journalists really in-tune with how jilted certain communities are with how they're portrayed in the media?
If you want to chime in, post a comment in the container or a tweet with the hashtag "#dfmchat" so it can automatically appear below.
