Journalism and Democracy: Covering Truths and Untruths
Stories from an NPR Political Correspondent

Community Talk with Asma Khalid, White House correspondent for NPR.

NPR White House correspondent Asma Khalid will discuss the role of journalism in a vital democracy and how a free press is a human right. She will cover her experience as an eyewitness to the first draft of history, including her travels around the country during the campaign season and on international presidential trips with the White House Press Corp. Join us as Asma shares her experience with political polarization and the changing role of journalism in the U.S. (and why public media still matters).
