Event description

Description

Sponsored by Colorado College and Pikes Peak Community College and presented by Citizens Project, Jody Alyn Consulting, Pikes Peak Women, and the Pikes Peak Library District.

It’s not news that the news media is in crisis. Seeking higher ratings and circulation, media outlets have over time abandoned the primary role of news: to provide people with the information they need to make the best possible decisions about their lives, communities, societies and governments.

Reliable news and information are inextricably linked to democratic society. It seems incumbent upon us to take action. But what action?

Through generous sponsorships from the Journalism Institute at Colorado College and the Office for Equity and Inclusion at Pikes Peak Community College, journalist and activist Shaun King will inspire us with insights and ideas on how to combat the effects of “fake news,” reporting bias and declining media independence. Shaun King is a Brooklyn-based writer and activist who focuses on civil and human rights, racial justice, and law enforcement misconduct. Before joining The Intercept where he now works as a columnist, he was the senior justice writer at the New York Daily News and writer-in-residence at Harvard Law School’s Fair Punishment Project. With the blessing of original publisher Frederick Douglass’ family, Mr. King is also rebuilding The North Star as a contemporary, online, hard news outlet
