Why Journalism is Important to the Survival of Our Democracy
May 21, 2020
Hosted by Dr. Paula Joyce
"It was immediately known that there had been deaths, but the initial report was that the deaths were of Guardsmen, based on a misunderstanding by a United Press International reporter,” Alex Jones, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist writes in the foreword to my guest’s book. “That wrong information was circulated instantly throughout the nation by other newspapers. The Beacon Journal’s reporter on the scene said it was four students who had been killed. The issue was fraught, as one version of events had the students firing on the Guardsmen. But the editors went with their own reporter’s version of truth. They stood virtually alone, and risked ridicule if not contempt. But they were correct.” Please join us Thursday when we explore: What is the role of truth in the media? Can you trust the news you’re seeing and hearing? If not, how do you equip yourself with the information you need? Why is journalism, especially local journalism, so important to the survival of our democracy?
