CAMBRIDGE FORUM invites you to an event tomorrow - Friday 4 December at 3 pm
CAN WE SAVE JOURNALISM IN AMERICA?
Respect for a free press is the cornerstone of democracy. But after all the fake news and tweeted lies, what will it take to restore public confidence and trust in American journalism? Charlie Sennott, founder of The Ground Truth Project, will share his ideas and we will hear from a couple of his young journalists working for Report for America who are injecting fresh energy into the field, on assignment around the country.
Matt Taibbi, award-winning writer and celebrated Rolling Stone correspondent, will talk about the financial challenges facing the press and discuss his recent book, "HATE INC.: Why Today’s Media Makes Us Despise One Another."
Learn why Taibbi says most people think of news as “a twisted wing of the entertainment business.”
Do you agree?
Cambridge Forum provides free and open discussions about the pertinent issues and ideas confronting us, in the world today.
