I had the opportunity to work with a uniquely interesting and talented set of peers through the Media and Journalism Fellowship (MJF)… I regularly see comedy videos, well-reported stories, television appearances, op-eds and even thoughtful podcasts produced by fellows from my MJF class. It’s very inspiring to see all of the ways that MJF fellows are contributing to a better public dialogue.
