Reflections on National Campaign Coverage: Challenges and Opportunities in the 2016 Presidential Race

Join the News Literacy Project for a special conversation with national political reporters Matea Gold and Abby Phillip from The Washington Post. In this Educator Innovator hangout, Matea and Abby offered their insights on some examples of rumors and misinformation in the 2016 campaign, discussed the competing issues and agendas they must navigate in their reporting, and described the active role young people can play as consumers and creators of news and information about political issues. This hangout was part of a special series on “Building News Literacy, Critical Media Skills, and Political Awareness Today” produced in connection to Letters to the Next President 2.0.
