The U.S. media has come under intense scrutiny. News outlets are combatting accusations of bias and sensationalism, of fake news and cyberattacks. News organizations receive only a fraction of the benefits of investigative journalism that citizens receive but shoulder the entire cost. Does the media business model allow for objective journalism? How can we change it?
TBGA CEO, Christine Alemany, is moderating this dynamic discussion on addressing the challenges of the for-profit journalism system. She will be in conversation with journalist Ariana Pekary, Gita V. Johar, Meyer Feldberg Professor of Business at Columbia Business School and the school’s inaugural Vice Dean for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and James T. Hamilton, Hearst Professor of Communication, Chair of the Department of Communication, and Director of the Journalism Program at Stanford, to address the issue and solutions of our current news situation.
