Democracy and the Press: The Role of Journals of Opinion

(via Boston Mobilization Events Listings)

Cambridge Forum

A panel of editors and publishers discusses the role of "journals of opinion "as alternative news sources in the era of Internet news and individual blogs. Victor Navasky, publisher emeritus of The Nation; Jack Beatty, senior editor of The Atlantic; and Robert Kuttner, co-founder of The American Prospect, examine the prospects for small journals committed to in-depth reporting and analysis and thought-provoking partisanship. In the rapidly changing media landscape, will there continue to be a place for the non-mainstream press?

Co-sponsored by Brookline Adult and Continuing Education and the Friends of Fairsted.
