SOCIETY OF PROFESSIONAL JOURNALISTS
FEBRUARY 3RD -- LUNCH FOR THE PROS
PANEL DISCUSSION: "ROLLING STONE, UVA and JOURNALISM"
Rolling Stone's expose on University of Virginia fraternities produced an immediate and dramatic reaction on the campus.
However, serious questions quickly emerged about the thoroughness of the research and the accuracy of the article.
The magazine backed away from the story, but the damage was done to the university and reporters everywhere.
How could this have been avoided? What are the legal ramifications? What role should ethics have played? What's the solution going forward?
Join the Greater Cincinnati Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists for "Lunch For The Pros" and a lively panel discussion on February 3rd from 11:30 a.m. - 1:15 p.m.
It's on the 20th floor of the Cincinnati Enquirer, 312 Elm Street, Downtown. Bring your own lunch or munch on sandwiches provided by the SPJ chapter. See you there.
1) Jack Greiner, media attorney with Graydon Head and Ritchey

3) Dr. Jeff Blevins is head of the University of Cincinnati Department of Journalism
