Trust, Journalism and Media Literacy @ Walter and Leonore Annenberg Theater

To paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, an informed citizenry is vital for a free society to thrive. And yet, in today’s hypersonic media cycle, separating news from noise is becoming all the more challenging.

Join NewseumED for a discussion with experts in journalism and education working to support an empowered, engaged electorate. Leave with a greater understanding of how journalism outlets consider issues of trust and how media literacy can empower communities.

Panelists are:

  • Tracie Potts, Washington Correspondent, NBC News Channel
  • Michael Freedman, School of Media and Public Affairs, George Washington University
  • Stephanie Brumsey, Producer of Facebook Live, Thomson Reuters
  • Ray Suarez, co-host, KQED’s “World Affairs”

Barbara McCormack, vice president education for the Freedom Forum Institute, will moderate the panel.
