Upcoming Event
Thursday, August 20, 2020 - 7:00pm

“What responsibilities does the press have to investigate and present the news fairly? How has new technology had an impact on the press and on the way we receive information? Is democracy harmed when an entire set of opinions is dismissed without considering its value, or when factual news reporting is labelled false without proof?" These are just some of the questions addressed by a celebrated author as she explores how the First Amendment right to a free press has been essential to a functioning democracy throughout American history.  

Join us for a conversation between Linda Barrett Osborne and News Literacy Project CEO Alan Miller as they discuss the past, present and future importance of press freedom. 

Linda Barrett Osborne was a senior writer-editor in the Library of Congress Publishing Office for 15 years. She is the author of the nonfiction titles Traveling the Freedom RoadMiles to Go for FreedomThis Land Is Our Land, and Come On In, America.  

Alan Miller is a former Los Angeles Times reporter, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, and founder and CEO of the News Literacy Project, a nonpartisan national education nonprofit that provides news and information literacy resources to educators and the public.  

Ages 12 and up.
