Trust, Truth and Questions for the Media

Diversity and Inclusion

It’s been a strange year in politics, to say the least. From a surprising Presidential election cycle to a sense of rising public mistrust in journalism to weekly policy and personnel changes in the White House, it’s been a difficult time for newsrooms. We’ve brought together a broad group of journalists to unpack covering an arguably unprecedented political moment, as well as look at where coverage is headed in the next several years. CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter will moderate.
