A panel discussion on media coverage gaps of the Black Lives Matter Movement
hosted by Chris Faraone & Jason Pramas
In one sense, there has been wall-to-wall coverage of the protests against police violence and misconduct since the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis cop last month. From cable news to local newspapers, there's been no shortage of write-ups or images. But what's been missing from this coverage? What well-documented history is often left out? And why? The purpose of this panel discussion is to answer those questions, and in the process to hopefully give reporters in the Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism network an idea about what gaps still need to be filled.
