"People are ready for something new...The traditional idea of journalism is outdated...People are realizing that journalists have an obligation to help society improve."
In this unprecedented time of crisis and uncertainty, journalism is crucial. Yet, mainstream news can cause the public to feel fearful, anxious and helpless. You can do your part by reporting on COVID-19 more constructively. Many people and organizations are responding to the pandemic in important ways, and their stories need to be told.
Join Dr. Karen McIntyre of the Richard T. Robertson School of Media and Culture at Virginia Commonwealth University for a webinar to learn how to take a solution-focused approach to news reporting on COVID-19 in an effort to fill knowledge gaps and spread information about what seems to be working in communities around the world.
