Heather Hendershot, professor of comparative media studies, researches conservative media and political movements, film and television genres, and American film history.

Should mainstream media outlets respond to outrageous statements from Fox about Covid-19?
Does coverage of the president’s terminology inflame racism, or is this coverage responsible journalism?
