A Statement from Resolve Philly in Response to Fox 29 News Segment
It has come to our attention that a segment on Fox 29 News has utilized the brand name of our former reporting project, and we feel compelled to clarify our position regarding this matter.
We want to make it explicitly clear that neither Resolve—nor any of our 29 newsroom partners who formed the widely known “Broke in Philly” reporting collaborative—had any involvement in the planning, production, or content creation of the latest Hank’s Take segment. The views, opinions, and content presented in this segment are entirely independent of Resolve Philly and do not reflect our beliefs, values, or mission in any way.
At Resolve Philly, we always strive to maintain the highest standards of integrity, transparency, and ethical conduct. Our commitment to these principles remains unwavering, and we are deeply concerned about any content that could potentially be damaging to our news collaborative’s reputation or misrepresent our organization. We are also very concerned that this reflects poorly on the more than two dozen other newsrooms who participated in the five-year reporting project, as they strove to represent the issue of economic insecurity with a humanizing, nuanced, and solutions-oriented framework.
We understand the importance of maintaining the trust and confidence of our community and stakeholders, and we take any situation that may compromise this trust seriously. We are actively monitoring the situation and exploring all available avenues to address this matter appropriately.
We want to assure our community and audience that we remain dedicated to our mission and values, and we will continue to work diligently to uphold our organization's reputation. We appreciate your continued support and understanding during this time.
