Reuters opens its Handbook wide

A few weeks ago, Reuters announced that its Handbook of Journalism would be published online for the first time. (It's now available for free at http://handbook.reuters.com.) And they've just posted this video to the Reuters' YouTube channel, featuring Dean Wright, Reuters Global Editor for Ethics, Innovation and News Standards, who introduces the handbook and explains how it can be used by professional journalists and citizen reporters, alike.

"As we've seen over the past decade," Wright notes, "the barriers to publishing have dropped so that anyone with an idea and a computer can be a publisher. But it's also become clear that publishers have varying standards of truth, fairness, and style - our handbook is a good place for you to begin to develop yours."

We encourage you to watch the video below and then dive into the Reuters' Handbook to learn just about everything you'd ever want to know about journalism from A to Z.
