Muck Rack Daily
Hello from Muck Rack, where you can get a snapshot of what journalists around the world are reading, thinking and commenting on right now.

The President and the press are at war. Trump calls his detractors in the media “the enemy of the American people.” He is naming names on Twitter. His White House chief strategist, Steve Bannon, refers to reporters as the “opposition party.”

What should journalists do while their entire profession is being insulted?

It’s an unprecedented time for American journalism. 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl, who has intense experience in the political arena, says her extensive track record didn’t prepare even her for today’s media deep disruption.

On the Muck Rack blog, Stahl comments on the state of media today and her thoughts for the future of news.
