Description

Molly Clayton, Elizabeth Dolehide and Caitlin Marshall examine ethical challenges that arise when journalists interview people who have been involved in tragic events, children who have been victims of crime, and people who have been sexually assaulted. The interviewing process can be cathartic for the interviewees, but it also can provoke traumatizing memories. Clayton, Dolehide and Marshall look at journalists’ interviewing techniques in these specific situations, explore the potential problems, and suggest ways that journalists can be more sensitive in their interviews while still meeting their obligations to report the truth and serve the public.
