Trump vs. Journalism


There’s no shortage of tension between the Trump administration and American journalism. Even as the battle rages ratings are up and so are newspaper subscriptions. So is Trump good or bad for journalism? Or both?

Political science students at Southern Connecticut State University are studying the first 100 days in a special class led by Professor Art Paulson. The class was created before the election so Paulson didn’t know whether he’d be teaching to Trump or a President Clinton, but he and his students say – as it turned out – there is no shortage of material.

Former WFSB news director Mark Effron is out with an opinion article on the state of student journalism in the Trump era. He has an optimistic view.

And finally, the Trump White House has spawned a new blog that is rapidly growing in popularity.
