Bias in the Newsroom

Introduction to Hostwriter

  • How to Use Hostwriter for Cross-Border Investigations and Stories

Hostwriter’s “Cross-Border Journalism Trainings” combine two complimentary modules. In the first module, participants are guided through the steps of the Cross-Border Journalism Method that was developed by our partner, Brigitte Alfter from Arena for Journalism in Europe, who wrote the book Cross-Border Collaborative Journalism: A Step-by-Step Guide (Routledge 2019). In the second module, we introduce participants to the concept of Cross-Border Journalism as a Mindset, which sheds light on collaboration as a tool to overcome Western bias within the global news narrative. The module is based on Hostwriter’s collaborative book project Unbias the News. Why Diversity Matters for Journalism (CORRECTIV 2019).    

Our “Introduction to Hostwriter” training helps journalists understand how to get their own cross-border collaboration started using our platform, which connects journalists from 150+ countries.
