Interesting project--have these bases covered

Dear jocelyn, this sounds like an interesting proposal.
Make sure these precautions are in place and both you and persons who submit information (applicants) and those who are selected have the following protection.
> * Confidentiality - what protection is in place to safeguard information (names, contact info) from applicants? Will documents be stored in a secure place and be discarded in a secure manner.
If any group takes legal action against the producer of the program or persons who are interviewed, what legal resources are available for participants during and after the show? (And for how long afterwards?)
> * Aftercare.
What if people get stressed out or suffer family turmoil or harassment from the group following participation. Will aftercare be available. And for how long?
How thorough will fact checking be? In tough times like these, $1000 can be a tempting amount. Two, a controversial group's PR representative or its legal representative can claim financial renumeration biased matters. How well are you prepared for this and how to rebut it?
Again, this is an interesting program. Sixty Minutes has done remarkable work of this kind. But first and foremost, the applicants and selected participants must have confidentiality protected during and after the show.
