‘Storyful Podcast’: Can trust in the news be repaired?
Michael Flynn’s guilty plea in the FBI Russia probe puts the critical role of accurate, trustworthy news into sharper focus. Listen to Director Sally Lehrman and TTP partner Craig Newmark in The Storyful Podcast talk about how the Trust Project is working to build that trust.
“We’ve got a lot of good things coming on so I’m very optimistic about the future of trustworthiness in news,” Newmark says in the podcast.
“That’s the silver lining here because we do have a situation where we’re very concerned about trust. At the same time, there’s a swath of people who are avid news users who are actively looking for news that they can trust,” Lehrman says.
