Getting it right: Breaking news, the Inauguration, and the Capitol insurrection
Newsrooms mobilize on instinct when news breaks. Those split-second decisions — how we describe an individual or a group and their actions — can define reality for millions of people. The Capitol insurrection provides lessons for the upcoming Inauguration in what loaded language to avoid, questions to ask in real-time, and how your values influence the way audiences understand and remember world events.

Join the National Press Club Journalism Institute and Resolve Philly for a practical program that will leave you with tips you can use to ask the right questions in real-time and prepare to cover the unexpected on Inauguration Day and in the weeks and months that follow.

The panel will feature: Eric Deggans, NPR TV critic, MSNBC/NBC commentator and author of “Race-Baiter: How the Media Wields Dangerous Words to Divide a Nation”; Danielle K. Kilgo, the John & Elizabeth Bates Cowles Professor of Journalism, Diversity and Equality in the Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities; Michael McCarter, managing editor for standards, ethics & inclusion at USA Today; Aubrey Nagle, Reframe editor at Resolve Philly. The program will be moderated by Cassie Haynes, co-executive director of Resolve Philly.

Jan 19, 2021 11:30 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
