Foreign correspondents Lindsey Hilsum and Anne Barnard discussed news coverage of the conflict in Syria and the life of war reporter Marie Colvin on Tuesday, Dec. 4 as part of the School of Journalism’s “My Life As” speaker series.
The “My Life As” speaker series, ran by the School of Journalism at Stony Brook University, has given students and faculty the opportunity to benefit from the experiences shared by prominent journalists such as Margaret Sullivan, Dean Baquet and Christiane Amanpour.
Since Trump became president, Sullivan said she is troubled by the frequency with which journalists covering the Trump White House publish anonymously-sourced stories, likening the thrill of an off-the-record exclusive to an addiction.
Carlson complained to the network about Doocy as early as 2009, according to a report from The New York Times. Ailes allegedly responded by calling Carlson a “man hater,” and telling her to “try and get along with the boys,” McGinnis said.
He said there is too much opinion in today’s journalism and talk shows, citing how the “The Sean Hannity Show” on Fox News and “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC are bad for journalism in America and the country as a whole.
