PEN Presents: Breaking the News

What is the state of press freedom in the United States? How can news consumers know what’s real news and what’s fake? How is the press covering (or not covering) under-represented communities? And heading into what promises to be a contentious campaign season, how can journalists do their jobs under increased threat? CNN’s Jim Acosta (The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America), PEN America’s Suzanne Nossel, and MSNBC’s Joy Reid (The Man Who Sold America: Trump and the Unraveling of the American Story) weigh in on journalism in the time of Trump in a conversation moderated by WNYC’s Jami Floyd.
