Panel Discussion on Ethics of Blogging

From the Capital Times:

UW-Madison journalism students will present a panel discussion about blogging and the ethics of blogging at 5:30 p.m. Thursday in Room 2195 of Vilas Hall.

The discussion will be titled "Connect or Compete: How do bloggers fit with traditional media?" The panel will discuss ethical issues related to blogging and take questions from the audience. The presentation is expected to focus on anonymous bloggers, reporters who blog and blogging legislation.

Panelists will include Wispolitics' Jeff Mayers, WORT's Nathan Moore, UW-Madison Law School associate professor David Schwartz and Channel 3 reporter Colin Benedict. The moderator will be Dietram Scheufele of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Journalism School.

The free program will be presented by the student chapter of the Society for Professional Journalists, which has designated this as Ethics Week. The Madison Professional Chapter of SPJ will provide refreshments.
