10 tips for covering white supremacy and far-right extremists journalistsresource.org/tip-sheets/whi… #WhiteSupremacistTerrorism
1. Be aware that journalists play a role in helping white supremacists and right-wing extremists spread their message.
2. Investigate the funding sources of white supremacy and right-wing extremist groups.
3. Don’t portray race-based extremism — or racism in U.S. politics — as new developments. They’ve been around for many decades.
4. Avoid letting white supremacists use their own terms to describe themselves. Call them what they are: white supremacists.
5. avoid interviewing white supremacists [what @BostonJoan calls a "strategic silence"]
@BostonJoan 6. Record your interactions with these sources.
@BostonJoan 7. If you must cover the statements of far-right extremists, always paraphrase.
@BostonJoan 8. Investigate the role technology plays in amplifying racist messages. Don’t link directly to white supremacist websites and content in your news articles.
@BostonJoan 9. Familiarize yourself with the efforts of organizations that advocate on behalf of racialized people + religious groups.
@BostonJoan 10. Understand that white supremacists who perpetrate violence want notoriety. DON'T GIVE IT TO THEM. //fin
