Editors and Reporters From CNN, Univision, Slate, and More Join Forces To Discuss How To Cover the Trump Era


The following promotion has been appearing in the email inboxes of politicos and news observers:

Join Slate for a conversation with top editors in New York about how the news media can and should proceed to cover the Trump presidency. The panel will discuss strategies they are implementing at their outlets, and how journalists and media companies at large can play a bigger role in making sure that fact prevails over fiction in the coming months and years. Profits from this event will benefit the Committee to Protect Journalists. Just Added! Borja Echevarría, VP and Editor in Chief of Univision Digital and CNN’s Brian Stelter will moderate Jacob Weisberg, Chairman of The Slate Group and host/creator of Trumpcast, and Julia Turner, Editor-in-Chief of Slate, will join in conversation with: Lydia Polgreen, Huffington Post David Remnick, Editor, The New Yorker NYU’s Jay Rosen will offer introductory remarks.

As you can see above, an upcoming panel on how to cover the Donald Trump administration will feature editors from CNN, Univision, Slate, the New Yorker, and the Huffington Post.

Given the fact that Trump gave his first press conference in six months yesterday, used the event to spar with a respected reporter, and didn’t allow reporters to look at the documents he brought along for show, a reevaluation of how major news organizations cover the presidency is certainly in order.

The event will benefit the Committee to Protect Journalists, which is the organization Meryl Streep used her Golden Globes speech to draw attention to. Yesterday, Buzzfeed even added a note to their e-commerce site announcing that proceeds from a shirt would go to the committee, too.

The tickets are for sale here.
