Video: The Journalist’s Job During a Global Pandemic

This webinar featuring Cindy Skrzycki and David Shribman took place on April 6 as part of our Policy Challenges During a Pandemic series.

It isn’t only humans who are being ravaged by the current health emergency. It’s news outlets, particularly in the United States, that also are collateral damage to the scourge of the coronavirus.

In this webinar, Cindy Skrzycki and David Shribman discuss how the COVID-19 crisis has highlighted the difference between media giants and smaller digital outlets, and why it is so important to have journalists reporting from the front lines.
