Ethical Issues in the Digital Space


Co-sponsored by NBC4 LA and the Greater Los Angeles chapter of the

Society of Professional Journalists

[Update: This event is now at capacity. To be put on a wait list, please e-mail]
It’s a rare journalist today who isn’t expected to work at least part of the time in digital media. But along with new technology come a host of ethical concerns that may not have presented themselves in a traditional, old-media journalism job.

What does the online entrepreneur do when she is selling ads to companies or politicians that she might have to write about? What does the web editor do when his boss wants aggregated content that doesn’t seem like it’s been aggregated?

Our panel of experienced digital journalists – each with a strong background in conventional as well as new media – will discuss ethical issues that have come up in their own experiences, and take your questions.

Moderated by NBC4’s Mekahlo Medina, our panelists will be:

  • Megan Garvey, assistant managing editor for digital,
  • Jonathan Lloyd, managing editor,
  • Alice Walton, political reporter, KPCC 89.3 FM and founder of

Refreshments will be served.
