National journalists tackle Trump-era reporting during TWU lecture

From the Denton Record-Chronicle

Even when they’re not working, the political theater of Washington, D.C., is never far away from Ashley Parker and Sabrina Siddiqui. Both women faced a packed auditorium on the Texas Woman’s University campus Wednesday night as they shared their experiences covering the often tumultuous Trump presidency. The two were featured speakers at the third annual TWU Jamison Lecture series and fielded questions from Krys Boyd, the host of KERA’s “Think” radio show.
