Democracy & Journalism
November 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
“An Issue of Trust: Democracy and the Future of Journalism” is a series of community conversations across Nebraska.
The Kearney Hub, in partnership with Humanities Nebraska, Federation of State Humanities Councils, the The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and Pulitzer Prizes, presents the local program.
There is no charge to attend the event.
Panelists for the Kearney program are:
– Erin Grace, Omaha World-Herald columnist;
– Shon Barenklau, Kearney Hub publisher.
The program will bring together the public, journalists and others involved with the media sector to explore the relationship between journalism, democracy and an informed citizenry.
The topics include the challenges facing national, state and local news media; concerns raised about “fake news” and biased news reporting; and the state of journalism in rural and urban areas.
This program is part of the national “Democracy and the Informed Citizen” initiative involving state humanities councils throughout the country that seeks to deepen the public’s knowledge and appreciation of the connections between democracy, the humanities, journalism and an informed citizenry.
