News 18 coverage policy

wlfi station logo square

Some events will not be covered by News 18, as a matter of general policy.

Two such events are suicides and bomb threats. In both cases, studies have found that broadcasting such events can lead to copycat events and actually amplify the problem.

As with all policies, there are exceptions. Stories will be dealt with on an individual basis.
