The Fort Worth chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and Texas Watchdog are teaming up to provide panel discussions and training for you on Saturday, November 20 at a program called Journalism Ethics in the Digital Age. The event is from 9 a.m to noon at the Maverick Activities Center, University of Texas-Arlington campus.

We'll start with the panel discussion on ethical issues for the media in the internet-social networking age. You'll not only hear from Texas Watchdog, but reporters from The Dallas Morning News, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram and other media outlets, too.

And you'll get a taste of training so you can keep a better eye on your local government or school district.

We'll show you how to ferret out conflicts of interest among our government officials and what you can do about it. And you'll also get a primer on public records and open meetings -- tips, pitfalls and trends in what governments officials are doing to keep folks in the dark.

There is limited seating, so RSVP ASAP by contacting mkpirtle@yahoo.com or by calling 817-272-7039.

The event is free, but there is a recommended $5 donation for SafeHaven of Tarrant County.

See you there!

Contact Trent Seibert at trent@texaswatchdog.org or 832-316-4994.
