Media Roundtable: What will it take for the mainstream news to adequately report on climate change?

Apr 25, 2019

 


 

On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we'll discuss coverage of climate change. According to Media Matters, last year, national broadcast networks spent a combined total of just 142 minutes on climate change.

What is the role of the media in informing people about the effects of climate crisis? What will it take to ensure the media tell the people the truth about what we're facing?

Guests:

Kyle Pope, editor in chief and publisher of the Columbia Journalism Review

Rebecca Leber, environmental reporter for Mother Jones
