Tell us: how should the media cover Trump’s 2024 run?

We would like to hear from people in the US about how the media should cover Donald Trump’s candidacy

Donald Trump’s announcement of a third bid for the White House renewed a conversation in newsrooms about the best way to cover his candidacy.

On the one hand, the campaign of a former president who commands the loyalty of a sizable portion of the American electorate is clearly newsworthy. On the other hand, even if his lies are called out, the decision to feature conspiracy theories and demagoguery prominently in news coverage can cause real damage, as media organizations learned from Trump’s previous campaigns as well as his presidency.

We want to hear your views on striking the right balance. Tell us how you think the news media should and shouldn’t be covering the former president’s campaign.

We may feature some of your responses in our reporting.
