Title: Official of unofficial, its the point that counts
Author: Staff, AZ Daily Sun
Subject: ERI, Policy
Abstract: Who speaks for an organization and how far should a newspaper go in determining what is the official vs. the unofficial line? It's a question that comes up more frequently than readers might expect as reporters go about talking to as many sources as possible to round out a story. At the Daily Sun, I urge reporters not to rely solely on official press releases but talk to teachers, nurses, salespeople and others working on the front lines of an organization for what is often a different perspective.
