Reporting on Extremist Groups
Over Zero has put together new guidance for reporting on extremist groups after the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
- Be explicit in naming these groups. Identify individuals or groups as white supremacists, hate groups, etc.
- Be clear about how their actions are intentional in causing violence.
- Acknowledge what is being done to address the violence. For example, include voices in your coverage from community leaders.
