The Art of Storytelling: Covering the Mass Shootings

It seems that in these times, all newsrooms must be prepared to cover high-profile shootings — whether they are in the workplace or at a nightclub, or of African-Americans whose deaths at the hands of police officers are captured via social media. This panel will address questions like: What must journalists keep in mind when such tragedies happen in their communities, or when they are sent in to cover such shootings? How can the "media" as a whole improve its coverage? What are best practices to using user-generated content and social media when such news breaks, and in the days following? What data sets are out there that could provide nuanced context as news develops?
