Journalism in an Age of Misinformation and Centralization

Journalism in an Age of Misinformation and Centralization

Dan Gillmor

October 17, 02017

As lying dominates politics and highly centralized entities increasingly control our media: is there any hope for honest news? These dual trends are a direct threat to our core liberties, including freedom of speech and assembly. Dan Gillmor will discuss where journalism goes from here and what, as media consumer-practitioners, we all can do.

Gillmor is a veteran journalist, formerly of the San Jose Mercury News. He has been champion of media literacy and citizen journalism for many years working with The Knight Foundation, the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University's Law School, and currently Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism.
