How Journalist Respects Sources Portrayed Negatively in Story - Yoav Gonen

Yoav Gonen returns to Capture Your Flag to build upon his 2009 interview with a 2010 conversation with host Erik Michielsen. In Chapter 5 of 17, Gonen, a New York Post education reporter, shares his approach to dealing with sources that will be portrayed negatively in a story. Gonen notes negative information will be made public and offers sources a chance to say something. He highlights that there are two sides to every story and that, in general, sources normally offer their point of view on what is being reported. Gonen earned his BA in English from the University of Michigan and his Masters in Journalism from New York University.
