Clarity sessions

Untangling the next normal in Journalism

On May 28th Clarity brought together leading UK and US correspondents to discuss what temporary or permanent changes Covid-19 has made to the world of journalism, media relations and editorial policies. 

We heard from a star studded panel including Amy Lewin (London, Sifted); Danny Fortson (San Francisco,  Sunday Times); Harry McCracken (San Francisco, Fast Company); and Pat McGee (San Francisco, Financial Times).
