Are Young Journalists Ready For A Changing Media Landscape?

Jul 31, 2018

President Trump's ongoing war with the media was amplified in several ways last week.

 

Trump’s staff banned a CNN reporter from a Rose Garden event because she asked the president tough questions during a press gaggle.

The President also attacked the media during a speech to veterans, where he told them not to trust negative news about him.


While presidents throughout history have complained of what they see as unfair treatment by the media, political observers say Trump’s battle is the most acrimonious since the Nixon era.

 

GPB's Leah Fleming sits down with veteran journalist David Armstrong, who directs the Georgia News Lab, an investigative journalism program for college students.

 

They discuss the effect that this battle is having on journalists in the field, and on the next crop of young journalists.
