Case Study: Investigation of Americas flawed pandemic response Read The New York Times’ investigation of the U.S. response to the coronavirus threat: Link to article: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/03/us/cdc-coronavirus.html?action=click&module=RelatedLinks&pgtype=Article Respond to the following: 1. The reporters conducted more than 100 interviews. List all the human sources (the people) they quoted in the final article. 2. Do you find the human sources, along with the statistics, documents and data included in the story, to be credible? Why or why not? 3. The story presents evidence that the Centers for Disease Control, or C.D.C., largely failed in its traditional role of being a reliable, central source of guidance and facts during a public health emergency. List all the reasons for this failure as described in the article. 4. Do the reporters also include defenders of the C.D.C.? Use specific examples. 5. There’s lots of talk about “meeting the moment” during this pandemic and economic collapse — for both public officials and journalists. The best journalists are trying to quickly and accurately inform citizens about the virus, the U.S. response to it, and the impact on our lives. Does this story help readers understand our current situation and how we got here, or not? Was it worth reading? Use specific examples to back up your points.
