National Association of Hispanic Journalists president and AP weekend political desk editor Michele Salcedo defended her no-tweeting-at-board-meetings position by pointing out that “we’re not a government entity” and “we’re not required to be open to the public”
We are happy to have members present, but having reporters present is a whole different ball of wax. If you have tweets . . . sent out at every point of the discussion, it doesn’t necessarily encapsulate the decisions that have been made. It is misinformation because it is not complete.
She told Marisol Bello, a USA Today reporter who objected to the board telling a UNITY News reporter to leave meeting because she was live-tweeting it, that “once we make a decision, we do communicate that. We are responsible to the members. We are not a publicly held corporation.”
