This past week, I was in London with five graduate students and five working reporters from Pakistan, as part of a project between the Medill School and the Centre for Excellence in Journalism at the Institute of Business Administration in Karachi. While there, we were asked to do an assignment with AJ+ to poll people on the streets of the UK capital to ask if President Trump should visit the city. This is after the Guardian reported that he told Prime Minister Theresa May he wouldn’t want to come if there would be “wide scale protests.”
Four of my students and one of the Pakistani reporters helped me find people to talk to, and the interviewees had some surprisingly thoughtful responses. The video (edited in San Francisco from the interviews and footage we submitted) ran this week.
