How is social media changing news?

Leads are sometimes found on social media, such as an innocent tweet from a player indicating he could sign with another team. Still, there are drawbacks to the way news is broken. There’s often a mad rush to be first at the expense of being right. Additionally, there’s been a recent rash of improper attribution. The SPJ Code of Ethics should be updated to incorporate today’s tech-savvy world.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Gray Grantham (Denzel Washington) from "The Pelican Brief."

What story are you most proud of writing or working on?

I had the privilege of sitting down with Case Bonebrake, a 91-year-old WWII B-24 bomber pilot with more than 20 combat missions, for almost an entire month before writing a feature story on him. Hearing his story made me truly appreciate “The Greatest Generation.”
