Should Journalists Let Sources Look Over Stories Before Publication?
Journalists traditionally have a one-way relationship with sources. Whether it is a CEO speaking on the record or a nervous whistleblower with a confidential tip, our approach tends to be the same: We take the information, publish the story and deal later with whatever the source thinks of what we wrote. This practice makes a lot of sense in investigative reporting when we interview powerful people for a story that may put them in a bad light.
