How much of a factor will disinformation be in the 2020 presidential election? In this edition of Update-1, Paul Barrett, the deputy director of the NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights, talks to Broadcast/Podcast Committee member Irv Chapman about the spread of disinformation that already has occurred, the different forms of disinformation and some examples of how it has played out.
With a broadcast journalism career spanning over 50 years, Irv Chapman has reported for Radio Press International and ABC News and now is with Bloomberg News. During his time with ABC, Irv was assigned to cover the Vietnam War. In this edition of Update-1, NPC Broadcast/Podcast Committee member Lincoln Smith talks to Irv about his time in Vietnam and how what he reported on might apply to a current conflict, such as Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.
With fewer newspapers still in business, and constrained budgets of those that remain, foundation and donor-supported organizations are seeking to fill the gap by sponsoring reporting trips to far-away places, producing stories that even top news media welcome. On this edition of Update-1, longtime Press Club member Irv Chapman interviews the executive editor of one prominent journalism organization, the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
