We frequently hear from you when you’ve seen, heard or read a news story that is riddled with all of the old generalizations, myths and outright untruths about Registered Citizens.
We’re making available to you an easy-to-use tool that you can use to help educate reporters and others who need help understanding Registered Citizen issues. It is this web page: For Reporters: Get It Right.
It is true that there are some reporters with an agenda who will not want to hear from you. There are such unfortunates. They are not at fault. They seem to have been born that way. Reach out to them anyway.
It also is true that there are reporters who are truly interested in rigorous honesty and accurate information even if it runs counter to their misconceptions.
Most news stories now include an email address or other means to contact the reporter. Send the link to our For Reporters page to those whose stories contain myth, untruth and flat-out errors of fact. If they are interested in accuracy and the basics of good journalism, they’ll thank you.
