Joanne Lipman: “The Media and Political Coverage” | Talks at Google

Veteran editor Joanne Lipman, author of the No. 1 bestseller “That’s What She Said: What Men and Women Need to Know About Working Together,” takes a hard look at the news industry’s failings – and its opportunities – especially when it comes to politics and gender.

More women than ever are running for the highest office in the land, yet women represent only a minuscule percentage of newsroom leaders. That has a direct impact on coverage: Female newsmakers are covered less frequently and treated more harshly. They’re more likely to be targets of digital harassment. Lipman, former editor-in-chief of USA TODAY and chief content officer of Gannett, lays out the challenges – and potential solutions – drawing both on the latest data and her unique perspective as a longtime editor in chief.
