“You’ve got to build off the credibility within your organization,” @Tom_Winter says at #IRE19. “Hopefully you work in an environment where when somebody says, ‘I don’t feel comfortable with us reporting this,’ that that’s a moment where the whole organization pulls back."

“We have a rule that if any of us aren’t comfortable with the sourcing, with the background...that stops the bus right there,” @Tom_Winter says of breaking news coverage. “We stop. We hold that detail-- let’s pause and get it right.” #IRE19
