Truth, Trust, and Trump: The president’s war on the press
Join ND Votes of the Center for Social Concerns for a discussion of the evolution of journalism and politics with Richard G. Jones, Annenberg Director of the Gallivan Program in Journalism, Ethics, and Democracy.
Candidate Trump exploited an erosion of trust in the national mainstream media all the way to the White House, and President Trump has all-but-declared war on the press. Richard G. Jones, director of the Gallivan Journalism Program and a former editor and reporter at The New York Times, discusses some of the challenges facing both journalists and news consumers in this climate. How much do the facts still matter? And how can readers, viewers and listeners make sense of it all?
