Headlines dominated by shootings, immigration reform and the migrant crisis open the door to stereotypes making their way into coverage of people of color, Muslims, the LGBT community and women. At the same time, in the age of social media, news organizations are pushing to respond faster, often with less editorial oversight. This NBC News and MSNBC panel examines how newsrooms can avoid stereotypes in both language and images, and how journalists can be more thoughtful when responding to criticism.
This session is sponsored by NBC/MSNBC.
