SU's Cox Participates in Panel Discussion on Trump Administration and Journalist Coverage
SALISBURY, MD---Dr. Jennifer Brannock Cox, assistant professor of communication arts at Salisbury University, recently was an invited guest for the panel discussion “Journalism in the Time of President Trump: Has Trump’s Administration Changed the Way Journalists Cover Government?” at Morgan State University (MSU).
Panelists discussed the changing press dynamic in the White House, as well as statements made and actions taken by the president and his staff during Trump’s first month in the Oval Office. These included the press conference during which the president responded to veteran journalist April Ryan’s question about the Congressional Black Caucus by asking her if she was friends with the caucus and asking her to set up a meeting with its members.
