Journalists Will Meet To Discuss How The Media Should Cover Trump


A few days after President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, “top editors” will begin a conversation on “how the news media can and should proceed to cover the Trump presidency.”

On Wednesday, Jan. 25, Slate will host the event dubbed, ‘Not The New Normal: How the Media Should Cover the Trump Presidency,’ with editors from Slate, Univision, The Huffington Post and The New Yorker. 

Journalists attending 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.”

Jacob Weisberg, chairman of The Slate Group and host/creator of Trumpcast; Julia Turner, editor-in-chief of Slate; Borja Echevarría, VP and editor-in-chief of Univision Digital; David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker; and Lydia Polgreen of The Huffington Post will all participate in the event that will be moderated by CNN’s Brian Stelter.

According to The Hill, the panelists were each very critical of Trump throughout the election. This will be the first time Slate has hosted a panel that discusses how to cover an incoming president.

Tickets to the event will cost $30, and all profits will benefit the Committee to Protect Journalists.
