My World Media Literacy How do journalists earn our trust?

Every day, journalists work hard to maintain the trust of their readers and viewers. The most important way to do this is through accurate reporting and complete transparency. But when reported information is found to be wrong, it is the responsibility of the journalists to update and correct it quickly and be open and transparent. In today’s world, misinformation can spread quickly through social media.  Follow a news story out of Mexico City and see how journalists were able to keep the public updated about an event and correct false reporting.
