NY Times Updates Guidelines for its Journalists’ Use of Social Media

by | Oct 16, 2017

The New York Times issued an updated and expanded set of guidelines for its journalists’ use of social media, reports the Times, which added that the “new guidelines underscore our newsroom’s appreciation for the important role social media now plays in our journalism, but also call for our journalists to take extra care to avoid expressing partisan opinions or editorializing on issues that The Times is covering.

“In the interest of transparency, we’ve included the complete guidelines below, along with an introductory memo sent to the newsroom by Dean Baquet, our executive editor.

“We’re always interested in hearing from our readers. Do the new guidelines raise any questions for you? If so, please share your thoughts in the comments section.

“To the newsroom:

“The New York Times has been a dominant force on social media for years. Our newsroom accounts have tens of millions of followers. Many of our journalists are influential voices on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other platforms. The voices of our readers, listeners and viewers inform and improve our reporting.

We believe that to remain the world’s best news organization, we have to maintain a vibrant presence on social media.

“But we also need to make sure that we are engaging responsibly on social media, in line with the values of our newsroom.

“That’s why we’re issuing updated and expanded social media guidelines.

“The guidelines were developed in a collaborative way by Cliff Levy, Phil Corbett and Cynthia Collins, and are rooted in the very experiences of our journalists.

“Please read them closely, and take them to heart.

— Dean Baquet, Executive Editor”
