Veteran journalist Peter Copeland talks about his new book, “Finding the News: Adventures of a Young Reporter,” which chronicles his career from night police reporter in Chicago to Washington bureau chief of the E.W. Scripps Company.
Lynn Sweet, Washington bureau chief of the Chicago Sun-Times, will moderate the conversation.
The book offers an honest and revealing narrative about how he learned the craft of news reporting and shares lessons he learned about accuracy and fairness during his long career.
Copeland’s story began in 1980 when a colleague hastily declared him a full-fledged reporter after four days of training. He went on to learn the business by chasing news in 30 countries across five continents, covering large-scale military actions including Operation Desert Storm and the U.S. invasions of Panama and Somalia.
