TOPIC & SPEAKER
How Do You #Rethink Journalism?
Molly is rethinking journalism for our era, the role it plays for us as a global community, the process for developing, reporting and telling stories as well as what kind of business model might help sustain it. She will describe how her family history, her professional experience and how being a prisoner in Abu Ghraib shapes her ideas about revitalizing the institution of journalism. Her core question is: If we were starting fresh and building it for tomorrow, what would it be like?
Molly Bingham, ORBmedia President & Chief Executive Officer (CEO) An award-winning documentary filmmaker, photographer and journalist, Ms. Bingham has covered news and conflicts around the globe. Her work has been featured in leading media outlets, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, Rolling Stone, The Independent, Vanity Fair, and she has appeared on top network and cable television and radio news programs.
