WEBINAR: Behind the Decision Desk: Fox News, the AP, CNN, and What To Expect on Election Night | PEN America

October 14, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 2:45 pm

Join PEN America and decision desk editors at the Associated Press, Fox News, and CNN to discuss election calls, projections, and how news organizations plan to navigate the challenges of election night 2020. Broadcast journalist Ray Suarez probes how news organizations will or won’t make calls, what responsibility networks and news outlets have in preventing the spread of misinformation, and how election night may stretch into election week. If you plan to tweet about the event, follow us on Twitter at @penamerica and use the hashtag #WhatToExpect2020.

The conversation is part of PEN America’s What To Expect When You’re Electing initiative, designed to inoculate Americans against the threat disinformation poses to this year’s election and to democracy.
