On February 18, 2010, at 12:30 p.m.
Join The School of Media and Public Affairs at GWU
as we host authors Robert McChesney and John Nichols for
a Conversation on Saving Modern Journalism
McChesney is an acclaimed communications professor at The University of Illinois, host of NPR's "Media Matters," and an author of 16 books, many about media and politics. Nichols writes for "The Nation" as their Washington Correspondent and long-time political blogger, while also serving as associate editor of the "Capital Times," the daily newspaper in Madison, Wisconsin. They have come together to craft a new book that examines the future of the struggling journalism industry and what the US government should do to save it.
The event will be held in the Amphitheatre of the Cloyd Heck Marvin Center, on the campus of George Washington University.
Doors open at noon.
Book discussion begins at 12:30pm, moderated by School of Media and Public Affairs Director Frank Sesno.
Discussion will be followed by Q and A.
