PolitiFact New York posted three more fact-checking articles by St. Bonaventure University journalism students last week.
- Meghan Hall and Hannah Roesch fact-checked a comment Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo made about COVID-19 funding in New York state. Read
- Jaren English and Julia Schneider fact-checked a statement about convalescent plasma therapy. Read
- Rachel Kimmel and John Pullano fact-checked Cuomo’s statement about who has authority over NYC schools. Read
The students are part of a team from St. Bonaventure’s Jandoli School of Communication who are taking part in a fact-checking workshop with PolitiFact senior correspondent Louis Jacobson. The students were selected for the workshop based on the strength of their writing, editing and analytical skills.
Jacobson’s collaboration with St. Bonaventure was arranged by Jandoli Institute Executive Director Richard Lee, an associate professor in the Jandoli. Jacobson has spoken by video to several of the courses Lee teaches on media, democracy and elections.
Michael Hogan and Sean Mickey authored the workshop’s first fact-checking article, which examined a comment Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren made about coronavirus’ racial disparities. It was posted on April 23.
