The State of Journalism in 2016

Featured Audio

In this divisive election year, there’s one thing Americans can agree on… the media’s to blame. A Gallup poll says only 4 in 10 Americans trust the mass media. On The Sound of Ideas, we’ll have an open and honest conversation with local news directors about the process of covering the news and the state of journalism in 2016. Then, we’ll talk to national media experts about how events in this year’s race bring up questions about the role of the press.
