The panel will take a deep dive into how news agencies are appealing to a new generation of news consumers that puts a high value on efficiency and shareability, sometimes at the expense of truthfulness. We seek to have an honest conversation on the complexities of navigating this space in today’s tense political climate. As is the case with all our speaker series events, this event will be globally simulcast and carried by ABCnewslive.com with an in-person audience of 400-800 people. This event will be free and open to the public.
