A Free Press in Turbulent Times
Democracy relies upon objective and accurate news coverage, rigorous investigative reporting and thoroughly informed analysis. But recent attacks on the media—from real incidents of fraudulent claims to constant accusations of “fake news”—have increased the sense of urgency to protect the role of the free press. Senior political reporter Anthony Brooks will bring his years of experience and insights to a conversation on the state of the press today and the stakes for all of us as consumers of the news.
Clark University professor Esther Jones will facilitate this timely and important discussion, just one week after the 2018 midterm elections.
This event is co-sponsored by the Higgins School of Humanities; the Department of English; the Department of Political Science through the Chester Bland Fund; and the Media, Culture and the Arts
program at Clark University.
This event is free and open to the public.
