Podcast: Fake news and Trump’s trashing of political norms

How worried should we be about President-elect Donald Trump’s unwillingness to establish a protective press pool? And for that matter, how big a threat is Facebook’s inability to police fake news? 

We dissected that and more on the first episode of The Kicker, a new, weekly podcast where we’ll discuss media news and important questions facing journalism today. This week, I’m joined by Editor and Publisher Kyle Pope and Associate Editor Nausicaa Renner.
