The Trentonian's troubles, SPJ After Deadline

By Rachel Semple, SPJ Communications Department

In Pittsburg, Kansas, high school journalists uncovered the questionable credentials of their new principal through good, solid journalism: "Pittsburg journalism adviser Emily Smith said she is 'very proud' of her students. 'They were not out to get anyone to resign or to get anyone fired. They worked very hard to uncover the truth."'

WHAT'S HAPPENING

Congratulations to the 2017 Pulitzer Prize winners announced yesterday! Great journalism is alive and well.

Where Pittsburg, Kansas saw great student journalism, Indiana lawmakers saw a threat. Indiana New Voices legislation--designed to protect the rights of student journalists-- failed to pass the Senate last week.

The Trentonian is still seeing trouble, even after a Mercer County judge settled the case in favor of publishing documents to shed light on a child abuse case. But the story doesn't end there: The New Jersey Attorney General's office wouldn't let it go. SPJ New Jersey is speaking out against this pointless use of taxpayer money.

ETHICS ESSENTIALS

Ethics Week 2017 is coming (mark your planner for April 24-28!) and we've got surprises in store. While you wait, read about the ethics of unpublishing.

"If people are going to be more skeptical of us, then we have to be better too." - SPJ Ethics Chair Andrew Seaman is reminding everyone that the media must hold itself accountable. That means vetting sources, owning up when we're wrong and being critical of ourselves.

GET A GIG

Alaska is calling: The Ketchikan Daily News is seeking a reporter for a six-day morning publication.

Fort Wayne Newspapers in Indiana is looking for a magazine editor to lead its team.

SPJ QUICK FIX

We're still recognizing student journalists whose work impressed us. Congratulations to Mark of Excellence finalists from Region 1, 2 and 5.

Charles R. Novitz, SPJ President from 1981-82, passed away last week. His career took him to ABC News, NBC News; Chicago and New York and more.
