Posted August 02, 2018 07:07:04 When the Post posted the news about the fatal shooting of an 11-year-old in Washington D.C. that killed his mother, one of the most-shared posts was about how the Post would no longer post news about gun violence in the U.S. The story was written in the first person, with no reference to the person killed.
But the post has since gone viral and garnered more than 11,000 shares.
The post also sparked a conversation on Twitter and in social media that touched on how the news media can do more to make our lives safer.
“It’s not a one-way street.
The Post can’t just stop reporting on gun violence, because it’s important,” said Daniel P. Johnson, a research associate at the University of Chicago’s Media Lab and a journalism professor at the Chicago Institute of the Media.
“But the post is a way to have a conversation about what the Post’s role should be, how we can change how our news outlets communicate with our audience and how the public can connect to the stories and the people.”
Johnson and his colleague, Dr. Mark Schmalz, who specializes in digital media, have been working to make the Post a more welcoming place for readers, and they have begun a series of community projects.
The first of these, called #PostGunSafe, aims to build a platform where people can post their thoughts on gun safety, as well as provide suggestions for improvement.
“We’re trying to be a bridge for the community,” Johnson said.
“The goal is to get people who have been really critical of the Post and their coverage of gun violence to open up and share their thoughts and concerns.”
In the past year, Johnson and SchmalZ have seen more people take up the #PostSafe hashtag.
The hashtag, which has been adopted by thousands of people across social media, encourages people to share their own stories and concerns with the media.
One person shared their thoughts about the Washington shooting: “My wife and I have been very supportive of the Washington DC Post and the gun violence stories they’ve published over the past few years.
We’re glad to see them taking steps to address the problem.
We are encouraged to see how they’re going to continue to help the community in this area.”
Johnson said the Post needs to take a step back and rethink how it publishes.
“I think that the Post is a place where a lot of people have been exposed to the media, so they’re a natural target for people to get a feel for how the media is,” Johnson told Next Big Futures.
“And they should be a place to share that with their friends and colleagues, but also to try to take that knowledge and use it in a way that is respectful and relevant to the news that they’re reporting on.”
Another post on the Post website has the hashtag #PPDRiskReport, which includes a list of things the public is encouraged to share with the Post about gun safety.
Johnson said that it’s difficult to know exactly what the public’s thoughts are, but he and Schlapz hope that the #PDRiskReport will encourage people to come forward.
“A lot of us feel like we’re not alone in the community, that we’re just another part of the news cycle,” SchlapZ said.
Johnson and PDRisk Report co-founder and editor-in-chief Michelle R. Williams also noted that there are many other organizations that offer resources to help people who are concerned about gun ownership.
“There are many organizations that can help people understand the role of the media in this country,” Johnson added.
The Post’s decision to not continue to publish gun stories has created a void in the public conversation on gun control, Johnson said, adding that he has heard from many people who feel like they are not welcome on the news site. “
They need to understand that this is something that affects all of us.”

“For many people, this is a barrier that they don’t feel like there is a solution to,” Johnson explained.
The paper is also trying to fill that gap. “
If the Post doesn’t publish gun news, it’s going to have an impact on people who aren’t impacted by gun violence.”
The paper is also trying to fill that gap.
A new section for the Post titled “Trends” has been launched, which features a section on gun culture, and it will soon expand to include an interactive map.
The new map allows people to explore what they are most familiar with in the news, which will be the first in a series that will provide the Post with an overview of what is currently happening in gun policy across the country.
In the meantime, the Post also is working to expand its
