Journalism had some high notes and some low notes in 2017. Elaina Plott, a young journalist at the Washingtonian, proved to be one of the high notes with her work. Jay and Amy talk to her about how she got started, her influences and what her thinking is about the state of journalism today and what the media needs to do to gain back some of the trust they’ve lost.
