Scott Rosenberg on MediaBugs at Ignite Bay Area

  1. 1. What if journalists handled errors… the  way   programmers   handle  bugs?   Scott Rosenberg -- MediaBugs.org Ignite SF | March 2, 2010
  2. 2. Pew Research Center, Sep. 2009
  3. 3.   59 percent of local news and feature stories found by news sources to have at least one error.   “I tracked 1,220 news stories identified by news sources as being factually flawed. Of those, corrections were published for 23 of them -- a corrections rate slightly below two percent.” -- Scott Maier, University of Oregon
