Today’s webcast included a segment on Student Congress that brings up an interesting topic for ongoing discussion on this blog: Whether journalistic principles apply to stories across platforms.

The short answer? The principles remain the same, regardless of platform.

In today’s webcast, we report that an outspoken SC senator will introduce 25 resolutions to congress this week. Newsworthy? Absolutely – it’s timely, the number of resolutions is unusual, and the resolution topics (from what I gather in the reporting) are of interest to your readers.

The story turns, though, when we give the floor to the senator to discuss his intention to run for SC president. There are three major issues with this story. Before I tell you what they are, I want your thoughts.

Watch the video, and comment below.
