Ethical Challenges Facing Journalism
One In-Person Session
Tue., Sept. 24, 2024, 6:30-8:30 pm MT

The world of journalism is changing, and changing fast. It’s a fact that award-winning journalist Marianne Goodland knows better than most―she’s been working in the field for 26 years. Join Goodland as she offers a behind-the-scenes look at that most American of ideals, the free press: where it’s been, where it is now, where it’s going and why it’s changing―all with an emphasis on the ethical challenges facing journalism. In the first hour, Goodland delves into what you as a reader and consumer of news should expect from the rapidly evolving landscape of journalism, including how to tell who’s behaving according to the ethical standards of the profession. Then consider these key questions: What are the standards for journalists? Why should you be looking for those standards in what you read? And what does accountability look like for today’s journalists? Then in the second hour, Goodland explores how journalists of today go about completing their jobs, how they choose what they write and why that should matter to you as a reader. Please note that this course takes place at the historic Denver Press Club, which has been supporting journalists and journalism since 1867. Come away with a clearer understanding of journalism that goes far beyond the front-page headlines.

Marianne Goodland is the chief legislative reporter for Colorado Politics, the Colorado Springs Gazette and The Denver Gazette. She’s also the dean of the Colorado state capitol press corps and president of the board of the Denver Press Club. She’s been covering politics since 1998 and has won numerous awards.
