The election could be contested and last for weeks after Nov. 3. Here’s what experts think journalists should know.
“Newsrooms need to prepare for a political environment in which mainstream political figures, most notably the President of the United States, are going to promote false and unsupported claims about the election. They need to prepare for that now.”
