News Media Must Up Their Game Or Trump Will Run The Show


“Journalists covering the White House must always be at the top of their game: tenacious, fearless and dedicated to a fair accounting of the truth. But the Trump presidency will challenge them like no other in our lifetime.”

Canadian veteran journalist Sean Mallen tries to decypher Donald Trump’s relationship with the media.  I made Sean’s acquantance when I produced his ENG live segments during the last Cardinals’ Conclave which elected Pope Francis from St. Peter’s Square in Rome, Italy.

Sean Mallen had an award-winning career of more than 3 decades covering stories from coast to coast and around the world, principally for Global News. He was Queen’s Park Correspondent, Host-Producer of Focus Ontario and the London-based Europe Bureau Chief for Global National. He is a multiple winner of the RTNDA award, including a citation for coverage of referendum night in Montreal in 1995. He has covered several federal, provincial and municipal elections going back to the 1980s. The many international stories he has covered include the Royal Wedding, the Eurocrisis in Greece, the Arab Spring in Egypt, Vladimir Putin’s re-election as president, the Costa Concordia disaster, the last Papal Conclave and both the Athens and London Olympics. He is now a communications consultant in Toronto, specializing in strategic communications. speech writing and high level media training. He is also an award winning travel writer with articles published in the Toronto Star, Post Media papers and other publications.
