MMCA President David Morgan’s Response to President Trump’s recent comments regarding Four Democratic Congresswomen:
The following is a statement from MMCA President David Morgan in Response to President Trump’s recent comments regarding Four Democratic Congresswomen:
“The media frenzy that has ensued from the President’s recent statements that the four Democratic members of Congress “hate America” further underscores the importance of diversity in news coverage, especially around issues that speak to the divisiveness that permeates the country’s current political discourse. MMCA believes it is now more important than ever to ensure that America’s newsrooms have a level of cultural competency and understanding of all communities. Our diverse voices are critical to provide context and address the deeper meaning and influence of the President’s comments. As such, we applaud Congresswoman Val Demings and her efforts to establish a Media Diversity Congressional Braintrust focused on consensus-based solutions.”
