President, White House Correspondents' Association
Almost a year to the day since President-elect Donald Trump declared the media “fake news,” Poynter is convening leading Washington correspondents and editors for a thought leadership summit on strengthening political journalism and public trust in a polarized era.
Participants will engage with speakers on an array of issues:
Findings of the Poynter Media Trust Survey
Fairness or false equivalence: Is it impartiality or "both sides" journalism?
Accuracy in an era of disputed facts
Breaking through partisan echo chambers
Avoiding the "enemies of the people" trap: Covering the president without politicizing the press
The anatomy of Washington scandals - and how to cover them
How to build audience trust through transparency in reporting
This all-day, peer-to-peer event followed by a reception will not be live-streamed. Apply now for limited seating. Registration closes November 27.
This is the first of five summits planned by Poynter's Newmark Chair in Journalism Ethics, Indira Lakshmanan.
