Roundtable Explores Increased Skepticism of Journalism

A discussion with UA School of Journalism assistant professor Susan Swanberg and Tucson Sentinel publisher Dylan Smith.

In what's become an increasingly divisive political climate, the term "fake news" has become a common way to slam the press. A longstanding Gallup poll that surveys Americans' confidence in U.S. institutions found that out of 15 groups, trust in television news and newspapers ranked near the bottom.

Arizona 360 explored the issue of how journalists should respond and adapt to heightened skepticism of the industry. Lorraine Rivera got insight from Dylan Smith, editor and publisher of the Tucson Sentinel, and Susan Swanberg, assistant professor at the University of Arizona School of Journalism.
