NPR Training Its Reporters How to Survive Donald Trump Rallies

From Mediaite:

The Washington Post reports that NPR has sent its political correspondents to “90-minute hostile-environment awareness training.” WaPo‘s Paul Farhi points out these training sessions are usually reserved for reporters heading into situations like “riots, mortar attacks, kidnappings or firefights.”

NPR appeared to give conflicting answers when contacted by Farhi. NPR’s senior vice president said the training was for “dangerous or possibly hostile environments,” while NPR spokeswoman Isabel Lara said it was designed to deal with “the stress of covering a very demanding story for a long period of time.”
