NEW YORK CITY | Â The new Trump eraâ€™s assault on journalists, information gathering and facts poses an unprecedented challenge. With the factual landscape transforming at a dizzying pace, the need to accurately report and share reliable information is more urgent than ever.
How can professional journalists and the info-sharing public navigate todayâ€™sÂ profound reality turbulence when so many people feel entitled to their own facts (including the U.S. President) and trust in the media is low?
To explore ways to fight the false and find the true, the Society of Professional Journalistsâ€™ New York chapter, known as Deadline Club, assembled an A-list panel of top media and law experts.
Bill Adair,Â creator ofÂ Politifact,Â Knight Professor of the Practice of Journalism and Public PolicyÂ andÂ director ofÂ Duke Universityâ€™s DeWitt Wallace Center for Media & Democracy;Â
Kyle Pope, editor-in-chief and publisher ofÂ theÂ Columbia Journalism Review;Â
Mandy Jenkins, head of news atÂ Storyful; andÂ
Lynn Oberlander, general counsel of media operations atÂ First Look MediaÂ and board director for theÂ Media Law Resource Center.
The moderator wasÂ Sheryl Huggins Salomon, senior editor-at-large and former managing editor ofÂ TheRoot.com.Â
The event was organized by Jessica Seigel, video recorded and edited by M. Cat Sandoval, and photographed by Marcus Beasley.
The Deadline Club is the largest chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, and the societyâ€™s 2013 Large Chapter of the Year.
