Christiane Amanpour

Journalism in the age of Trump

Since the election, too often we have seen mainstream journalists and news outlets amplify Trump’s lies instead of fact checking them. Now is a time when courageous journalism is needed more than ever. Journalists should call out the lies, not enable them by repeating him. Trump’s blatant nonsense about voter fraud is a particularly galling example. Christiane Amanpour rallied journalists to stand up for the truth in the age of Trump, saying “I believe in being truthful, not neutral … we must stop banalizing the truth.” Watch the video of Amanpour’s speech and click here to share it on Facebook.
