The news media’s coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign was overwhelmingly negative and lacked in-depth explanations of the candidates’ policy positions. Misinformation ran rampant, and widespread disinformation campaigns successfully sowed doubt among citizens, which left them confused about who and what to trust.
Join Media Impact Funders and Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement Funders (PACE) for the first of a two-part series on how election coverage can be more inclusive and reflective of the communities it’s trying to inform.
The first part, to be held on April 23, will explore how election coverage can be more engaged with and reflective of the communities it’s trying to inform.
Jennifer Brandel, the CEO and co-founder of Hearken, an audience-engagement methodology and platform for newsrooms. Brandel will present a variety of methods and resources to support newsrooms’ elections coverage during times of crisis.
