Panel Discussion: Ford Foundation Program
By Newseum staff
The Ford Foundation sponsored an in-depth conversation about the future of public-interest media April 20 at the Newseum. Rapidly changing technology, a rising number of new media outlets and a decreasing array of traditional media have resulted in a dramatic shift in public-interest media in the past decade.
CNN's senior political correspondent Candy Crowley moderated the forum, "Serving the Public Good: A Recipe for Responsible Media in a Digital Age." Panelists included Karen Brown Dunlap, president of The Poynter Institute; Reed Hundt, former chairman of the Federal Communications Commission; Paula Kerger, president and CEO of Public Broadcasting Service; and Rey Ramsey, chairman, CEO and co-founder of One Economy.
