Ethics in VR/AR Journalism

Recording: Ethics in VR/AR Journalism, Mar 14, 2018

We’ve heard these words before: “VR is the empathy machine, the ultimate tool to create empathy and lead to change” - this gives VR/AR content creators in journalism a responsibility to not manipulate the scene they record. Journalists are not in the scene when the action is recorded so how do you make sure you have the action you want to show without coordinating with the subjects? We will dive into the ethics involved in Journalism & VR, how it affects the credibility or the reporting.
