About the Event
Serious independent journalism faces two existential threats: economic destruction because of the failure of so many news organizations to find an adequate response to the digital challenge; and political and cultural rejection, not just by a new generation of populist leaders but by activists and pressure groups across the ideological spectrum. Mark Thompson, the outgoing CEO of The New York Times and a former Director-General of the BBC, explores these two profoundly interconnected threats and proposes how the news business can fight back and secure its own future.
Jeffrey Green, Professor of Political Science and the Director of the Andrea Mitchell Center at the University of Pennsylvania, and Kathleen Hall Jamieson, Elizabeth Ware Packard Professor of Communication and Director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the Annenberg School, will co-host/moderate the event.
