Chris Cobler, Advocate editor, leads Poynter training on online credibility

Victoria Advocate editor Chris Cobler will lead a national journalism training session on online credibility.

The webinar at the Poynter Institute is called "News Site Credibility: Whom Do Readers Trust?"

This is how Poynter describes the course: "Do readers trust print more than online content? How much do they trust user-generated content such as comments and video? Does local content and local feedback matter? See what the readers of the Victoria (Texas) Advocate and www.victoriaadvocate.com said in an APME Online Journalism Credibility Project survey. You'll hear what readers say about the credibility of news sites, how one newsroom handled the results and how you can put those findings to work for your site."

The course is for editors, producers and anyone who creates or manages online user-generated content.

This Webinar is part of the Online Journalism Credibility Series, developed in partnership with Associated Press Managing Editors (APME). The Webinars are the outcomes of projects by six newsrooms as part of APME’s Online Credibility Project and funded by grants from the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation and APME Foundation. The series is also developed with the support of the Canadian Newspaper Association (CNA).
