Mitchell, director of journalism research at the Pew Research Center; and Claire Wardle, executive director of First Draft; discuss trends in disinformation and practical ways journalists can build trust with news consumers. Susan McGregor, assistant director of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism and assistant professor at Columbia Journalism School, moderates.
CFR’s Local Journalists initiative equips journalists with the resources needed to draw connections between global dynamics and the local issues they cover, in order to elevate conversations on U.S. foreign policy choices and increase civic engagement. Through a webinar series, an annual workshop tailored to the needs of local journalists, and year-round foreign policy expertise and analysis, participants gain access to the vast resources CFR has to offer and a professional network of peers and sources.

Knight Foundation, and brought together more than one hundred participants from 31 states, Washington, DC, and Canada, representing 77 unique media outlets including print, online publications, TV, and radio. The workshop provided resources to connect local issues with international events and a forum for sharing best practices.
