Journalism and Politics
Where do you get your news? How do you gather information for issues you’ll support? What expectations do you have of the media to give you the full picture and how does our need for continuous coverage impact the quality of objective reporting? Do we rely only on news sources that validate our belief systems or do we search for those who may have different points of view? Join us for a discussion about the role we each play in being responsible and educated about community issues. Our speakers are:
Tara Doolittle, Austin American-Statesman
Emily Ramshaw, The Texas Tribune
R.B. Brenner, School of Journalism at UT Austin
7:30 – 9:00 am
Palmer Events Center
Tickets are $25.00. Breakfast included.
