Journalists: How Should We Cover Trump?

We all know the answer to that question. But The Hill reports that on January 25, representatives of Slate, the Huffington Post, Univision, the New Yorker and CNN will put on a public program on the topic at NYU:

Journalists from The Huffington Post, Slate and Univision will gather days before Donald Trump’s inauguration to publicly discuss “how the news media can and should proceed to cover” the president-elect.

Slate will host the event next Wednesday, called “Not the New Normal.” CNN’s Brian Stelter will moderate the panel at New York University.

Interesting that CNN is willing to associate itself with that group.

The focus of the discussion will include “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,” according to Slate.

“Fact” means anti-Trump, anti-Republican and anti-conservative narratives. “Fiction” means anything liberals would prefer you didn’t know.

Slate’s editor-in-chief, Julia Turner, and Slate Group Chairman Jacob Weisberg — who hosts “Trumpcast,” a podcast dedicated to covering the president-elect — will participate in the panel.

Joining them will be Borja Echevarría, Univision Digital’s vice president and editor-in-chief; Huffington Post editor-in-chief Lydia Polgreen; and New Yorker editor David Remnick.

Most of the panelists were staunchly critical of Trump during the campaign and have remained so since Election Day.

“Most”?

Everyone knows what is in store. It will be open warfare between Trump and the press for the next four years.

The Hill, by the way, makes this contribution to illiteracy, adjacent to the article on the NYU program:

That’s our “elite” news media.
