Most non-journalists don't know how journalists do their jobs. And why should they? We don't do a great job of explaining it. Learn how you can correct misassumptions about journalism while building trust in your work.

This is part of a five-part series created for ONA20 Everywhere by Trusting News, a nonprofit research and training project that empowers journalists to demonstrate credibility and earn trust, . You can watch all five parts now here! The series can be watched in any order, and none of the videos are longer than five minutes. While the series uses the lens of political coverage to share why and how to defend your journalism, the concepts shared are applicable to any area of reporting
