Years ago, the most trusted man in America was a newscaster. Now, people’s trust in the media is painfully low. In our regular segment about news literacy we talk to students at Edward R. Murrow High School in Brooklyn, NY and the teacher who heads their high school newspaper about trust in the news.
Scott Menscher is a Communication Arts teacher at Edward R. Murrow H.S. in Brooklyn. Scott runs the journalism program at the school and is the faculty adviser of the award-winning newspaper, The Murrow Network. Scott also teaches a News Literacy class to sophomores and serves on the teacher advisory board for the News Literacy Project.
