The National Press Club Journalism Institute, the National Press Foundation, and the RAND corporation are offering journalists a new way to prepare for the unexpected in Election 2020 news: Gaming your coverage plan.
Registration is open for this free program, which will be held on Friday, Sept. 25 from 5-7 p.m. ET.
RAND gamemaster David A. Shlapak will present players with scenarios based on current and likely events, and each team will make coverage decisions, not knowing what the next roll of the dice will bring.
The game will surface journalists’ assumptions and test decisions as reporters and editors balance competing goals, commit limited resources, and assess tradeoffs. The game’s timeline will begin in September, continue through Election Day, and end on Inauguration Day.
Political journalists will play in teams, and observers will go behind the scenes to eavesdrop on the decision-making by competing groups. The program will conclude with a debrief that ties the game outcomes to coverage decisions you’re about to make.
