Prize-winning columnist: Journalists can win against Trump's false claims

Pulitzer Prize-winning newspaper columnist Ellis Henican has a way to counter President Trump's false claims of fake news and of journalists as "enemy of the people."
At a talk Jan. 30 at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Henican, who writes a weekly column called Trump's America, outlined steps the news media ought to take:
1. Don't make mistakes. 2. Make good use of technology. "We can do technology better than Donald Trump." 3. Use the old-fashioned method of gathering facts and finding articles. 4. Talk with people you may disagree with. 5. Provide depth, background, context and perspective in articles.
