Reuters launches “The Trump Effect” page on its website
“The Trump Effect,” launched on Reuters.com on Thursday, is a section featuring text stories, video, photos, interactive graphics and data that show readers the real impact the Trump administration is having on people, communities, institutions and businesses around the country.
Reuters editor in chief Stephen Adler writes, “We’ve been working hard to follow this playbook ever since, organizing our reporting teams to target areas where the Trump administration promised to change or reverse policy, so that we can cover what the administration does – not only what it says or what is being said about it. This approach has produced, for instance, a story tracking the number of arrests of undocumented immigrants in the wake of the president’s statements and executive orders; a Reuters survey showing that most power-generating companies have no plans to alter their years-long shift away from coal, despite an executive order declaring an end to America’s ‘war on coal’; and a report on projected staffing levels at the EPA that would result from the Administration’s budget proposal.
“Today, we are taking this approach even further by launching a project called ‘The Trump Effect: Tracking the Impact of the President’s Policies.’ This dedicated section features text stories, video, photos, interactive graphics and data that identify and measure the impact of policies in the areas of energy and environment, health care, immigration and business and the economy. Other areas will follow.”
