The news industry in America is at a crossroads. While there are many great journalists producing important stories, confidence in the news media is at a historic low, thanks in part to repeated, "fake news" assertions by some elected leaders, disinformation, and a growing distrust of institutions. On PI Sources, we talk to journalists about what it's like to work in this era and the challenges they face trying to keep people informed. The goal: To see the truth and report it. Oh, and there are funny moments too!
