What makes a journalist ethical? How can journalists develop and maintain public trust? In today's political climate, these questions might be more important than ever.

Just as in many newsrooms, the reporters and editors of the Brainerd Dispatch must regularly grapple with ethical decisions regarding news coverage. How we arrive at decisions and what principles guide that decision-making process is the subject of this week's DispatchCast episode. Have you ever wondered why we chose to include-or not include-certain information in a story? This just might be the episode for you.

Plus, meet our newest reporter, Gabe Lagarde.
