Who is Jaci Clement?
Jaci Clement is a media expert with more than 20 years experience in the communications industry. She is currently executive director of the Fair Media Council, a New York metro area media watch organization headquartered at Briarcliffe College on Long Island, New York.
She is regularly interviewed on issues affecting local news and the subsequent impact on the news consumer; frequently contributes opinion pieces on the topic to a variety of publications, and speaks around the country on the importance of being a media savvy consumer. She has created a media literacy program and brought it into the classroom, believing strongly that news literacy and literacy skills must develop simultaneously to enhance children’s deductive reasoning and critical thinking abilities and, ultimately, to create a generation of world-class citizens.
Her news experience began when she was in the fourth grade, when she earned her first byline in a daily newspaper. She worked as a reporter while attending college, in addition to being a stringer for The New York Times' education section and serving as editor in chief of her college newspaper, The Chronicle, which was highly regarded as one of the best college newspapers in the country. While still a reporter at The Chronicle, she wrote an investigative news article that forced the resignation of a tenured university professor.
