Jessica Yellin is the founder of #NewsNotNoise, a fresh voice in media that provides daily news reports on Instagram. You can find the account @jessicayellin.
She's the former chief White House correspondent for CNN and an Emmy and Gracie award-winning political journalist reporting for CNN, ABC News, and MSNBC. She has covered Capitol Hill, domestic politics, state and national elections, the culture wars, and issues facing women in the workplace. Her work has been published in The New York Times, The Daily Beast, Details, Entertainment Weekly, the Los Angeles Times, and The Atlantic. A Harvard University graduate, Jessica released her first novel, Savage News, about reporting-while-female, in 2019.
On News Not Noise, she does the news via Instagram daily to an audience that includes Jennifer Aniston, Kerry Washington, Selena Gomez, Orlando Bloom, and Amy Schumer, nurses, teachers, and politicians. Jessica provides information that helps the people understand the issues and talk about them knowledgeably. The idea: she offers information, not a panic attack.
Jessica joins us to talk about how modern news sources compete for our anxiety, finding her voice, and the challenge of combating disinformation on the very social media platforms that espouse it.
