Facing everything from a barrage of disinformation to heightened security risks, collapsing revenues, and a mental health crisis, journalists around the world are contending with myriad daunting challenges as they report on the deadly COVID-19 pandemic. Join Tow Center Director Prof. Emily Bell and ICFJ’s Global Director of Research Dr. Julie Posetti to discuss their Journalism and the Pandemic Project – a study which aims to map the impacts of COVID-19 on journalism worldwide and identify guideposts to aid a post-pandemic future.
