RCS Welcomes Emmy Award-winning 60 Minutes News Producer Draggan Mihailovich

Ninth graders had the opportunity to meet with 11-time Emmy Award-winning 60 Minutes news producer Draggan Mihailovich. The students, who are studying media bias, journalism, propaganda, and source validation, had the opportunity to discuss with Mr. Mihailovich the challenges associated with news reporting in a hyper-partisan time. The student questions ranged from how Mr. Mihailovich has dealt with claims that news reporters are propagandists to the impact of social media to how individuals come to believe what they do. It was a fascinating discussion, and the students gained great insight into the challenges associated with managing personal bias and the dangers of a single story.
