Event description

Description

These days people don’t just have conflicting opinions. They have entirely different sources of information. In this talk, KUOW's political reporter-Amy Radil- will lead the audience in a conversation on the editorial process, how journalists decide what to cover, and whether just watching a few minutes of the “opposing” TV network is helpful for building understanding. She’ll also celebrate some current examples of thoughtful journalism and storytelling. Audience participation and brainstorming welcome! 

ABOUT THURSDAYS WITH KUOW

An NPR/PBS Newshour/Marist poll found that 68 percent of Americans do not have much confidence or any at all in the press. Additionally, according to a Pew Research Center poll, 83 percent of people in the Seattle area say they have never spoken with a local journalist.

In an effort to counteract the erosion of trust in media, deepen the public’s understanding of journalism and ensure our community's voices are reflected in our reporting, KUOW invites you to a series of free public presentations and conversations with KUOW reporters. At each meeting, the journalist will talk about their work, answer your questions about the journalistic process and hear from you on what topics and stories are important to you and your community.
