As the Covid-19 Crisis continues, various media outlets have started to evaluate their news coverage policies and procedures. At the start of the crisis, national media aired the entirety of the White House briefings. Now many state Governors are holding their own media briefings. We are in a whole new world of providing fair and accurate reporting.
There have been reports of one public radio station in Washington that has chosen to monitor the live briefings and report any actual news. I’ve noticed that the networks have started cutting these sessions short due to what some feel is political grandstanding.
These are tough times for those making decisions on how and when to cover this pandemic. For the sake of dialog, what are your thoughts? How would you manage your news organization during this time?
