On Feb. 24, PLNU held the annual Report Card on the Media, presented by the San Diego Society of Professional Journalists, a chance for local newsmakers to reminisce on how they were treated and portrayed by the media and then pass out grades. 

This year’s panelists included California State Rep. Nathan Fletcher, most noted recently for his authorship of “Chelsea’s Law” intensifying sentences for those who commit sex crimes against children; Lorena Gonzalez, secretary-treasurer/CEO of the San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council, AFL-CIO; Steven Kane, one construction worker-turned-hero who tackled a shooter at Kelly Elementary School in Carlsbad; and Robert Pincus, former San Diego Union-Tribune arts critic whose layoff ignited upheaval in the arts community.

Dennis Morgigno, Cox Channel 4 station manager and programming host, moderated the panel. 

The event was filmed by students and will air on Channel 4, air date to be announced.
