Kyle Pope

Kyle Pope says the science is clear, but too often journalists are not. For too long, the U.S. media have downplayed and distorted  the climate change story, with devastating consequences. That’s why he has co-founded a new initiative involving over 60 news organizations to get the story right.

Brian Ott

Well before his inauguration, Donald Trump launched a virile assault on the press and the very notion of truth itself. Since then, the attacks have only escalated. Brian Ott is a communications scholar who examines the intersection of rhetoric, media and democratic discourse.  He says the President has spearheaded a credibility crisis, and it relies on all of us to repair the damage.
