Which media journalist are you? – MSNBC
On Thursday, a panel of top media experts will host a debate on the state of the media and the role of social media in the 2016 presidential election.
The panel, moderated by NPR’s Ari Shapiro, will discuss the importance of social platforms in our democracy.
Shapiro will discuss why a media that is critical of the current administration is critical in the future.
The experts will also discuss how journalists are responding to the new Trump administration and how they can help shape a better future.
Among the topics covered will be the role and influence of the press in our current era.
They will also address the role that the media is taking on in the fight for truth and democracy.
Ahead of the debate, Shapiro tweeted that the panel would be moderated “by a handful of top journalists and media influencers,” which would likely include some of the same journalists and influencers who are moderating the debate tonight.
The question of whether the media should be critical of Trump, who has been a regular fixture on the news for years, was raised during the presidential campaign.
In November, former president Bill Clinton called on reporters to not criticize him, even though the White House denied that he ever made any such remarks.
Trump has been critical of news outlets in the past.
He called CNN and NBC’s Megyn Kelly a “liar,” and his own administration has threatened the news organizations that report on the White Trump administration.
In October, a White House official said that he would fire reporters who broke the news of the opioid epidemic.
This came after the Trump administration threatened to withhold federal funding for a news organization that had reported on the opioid crisis.
On Thursday, Shapiro is moderating a debate at the Washington Post, the site of the second panel on the topic.
The debate will be modered by former NPR journalist Robert Siegel.
Siegel is also a regular contributor to MSNBC and has been the co-host of the podcast The View since 2007.
Snyder and Shapiro will be joined by panelists including John Hinderaker, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution; Jeffrey Goldberg, a former White House reporter and a former Newsweek editor; and Mark Lilla, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and columnist.
The event is part of MSNBC’s The Politics Podcast, a daily podcast that airs every weekday at 10:00 a.m. ET.
