Content Directive: Sunday, May 31st

 Friends!

 Whew, what a weekend. One we'll all likely remember forever.

 In light of everything happening, we wanted to send over some directives (straight from our leader, Scott Owens, himself!) about covering protests:
  • We should acknowledge the protests and show solidarity with them.
  • We shouldn't go deep on 'coverage' (eg - dedicated /p pages) unless there's a new angle or insight that we can uniquely offer.
  • We never ever want to incite or encourage violence. Ever.
  • Don't over cover the protests; we aren't reporters.
  • Use your gut.
  • Inject an air of hope and optimism whenever possible.
 This is an example of a post we love.

 Please let us know if you have questions!
