NewsGuard Co-Founder Featured on KDKA Radio;  Spotlight PA Hosts Program on Misinformation

KDKA Radio talk show host and Press Club board member Chris Moore will interview NewsGuard co-founder Gordon Crovitz Saturday, April 7, at 5 p.m. Chris is following up on the NewsGuard report on misinformation trust and integrity for media coverage through Western Pennsylvania that was released last month as part of the journalism summit held by the Press Club with partners. You can watch the session on YouTube.

The report found that Metric Media, a company described by The New York Times as largely a PR and marketing company masquerading as local news, operates 45 websites. You can listen to Chris via radio at 1020 AM or via streaming on the station’s website.

Also, Spotlight PA – the collaborative newsroom dedicated to producing nonpartisan investigative journalism about Pennsylvania government and urgent statewide issues has invited Press Club members to another program on the same topic. Here is the info and link to register:
