YouTube launches Reporters' Center to help you report the News

YouTube is helping the enormous community of citizen reporters on YouTube with a new resource to help them learn more about how to report the news.

YouTube Reporters' Center features some of the nation's top journalists sharing instructional videos with tips and advice for better reporting.

In their own words:

Learn how to prepare for an interview from CBS News' Katie Couric; how to be an investigative reporter from the legendary Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward, or why it's important for citizens to participate in the news-gathering process from Arianna Huffington.

And definitely don't miss out on New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof's video on how to report from a crisis area without getting shot.

In addition, you can also learn practical and ethical tips, like how to fact check your stories, avoid breaking the law while reporting, and adhere to journalistic principles.
