Brian Hansbury, Co-Leader of Media and Democracy Project, joins Deepak Puri, CEO of The Democracy Labs, to discuss guidelines for pro-democracy election coverage.  With an open letter to American media executives, publishers, and journalists, Brian and his team are intent on expecting more from media companies in their reporting of the 2024 election. The Project is asking national and local journalists to support democracy and encourage the engagement of voters in issues with less focus on polls.

Deepak and Brian talk about:

  • The eroding trust in traditional news sources
  • Treating elections like they are more important than sports scores
  • Polls are not news events
  • Voter suppression
  • Supporting robust local journalism
