Looking for policy news? You’ve come to the right place.

PRN Media How-To on Policy News

While President Donald Trump continues to spar with news agencies about White House coverage, PR Newswire has a massive collection of releases to help fill out stories.

Hundreds of news releases cross the newswire each day, discussing everything from the president’s agenda to folks who support his work – and others who don’t.

No matter your political leanings, covering the White House is part of the business.

Remember that Air Force One contract that hit a major snag in December? Boeing issued a statement.

Here are some of the headlines that recently crossed PR Newswire.
