Media Misses: We need more truth, not more Trump, in this dangerous time

A recent New York Times story misses the point

I’m happy to share that I’ve cooked up this new series of short videos with fellow newsletter writer and former Chicago Tribune metro editor Mark Jacob. We’re calling it “Media Misses,” an opportunity to take a regular look at journalism stories that miss the mark at a time when our democracy needs journalism and journalists to effectively confront right-wing extremism and the rising danger of autocracy.

In this debut episode, we discuss a New York Times story headlined, "Ignore Trump? Democrats Now Want Him Plastered All Over the News."

You can watch our conversation here:
