Event Details

WSHU reporter, Cassandra Bassler will interview Pulitzer Prize – winning reporter Linda Greenhouse about her new book, Just a Journalist, in which she explores the remarkable transition in American journalism.  Only a few years ago, the mainstream press was wrestling with whether labeling waterboarding as torture violated important norms of neutrality and objectivity.  Now, major American newspapers regularly call the President of the United States a liar.  Clearly something has changed as the old rules of “balance” and “two sides to every story” have lost their grip.  Is the change for the better?  Will it last?  Greenhouse tackles these questions from her own perspective as a reporter who for decades covered the U.S. Supreme Court for The New York Times.

 

Books will be available for purchase through RJ Julia Booksellers. Ms. Greenhouse will sign books after event.


LINDA GREENHOUSE is the Knight Distinguished Journalist-in-Residence and Joseph Goldstein Lecturer in Law at Yale Law School. She assumed this position in 2009 after a 40-year career at the New York Times, including 30 years covering the United States Supreme Court. She received numerous journalism awards for her reporting, including a Pulitzer Prize in 1998 and the Carey McWilliams Award from the American Political Science Association in 2002 for “a major journalistic contribution to our understanding of politics.” Currently, she writes a bi-weekly opinion column on the Supreme Court and law for the New York Times web site.

She is also the author of a biography of Justice Harry A. Blackmun, Becoming Justice Blackmun (2005); Before Roe v. Wade: Voices That Shaped the Abortion Debate Before the Supreme Court’s Ruling (with Reva B. Siegel, 2010), The U.S. Supreme Court: A Very Short Introduction, (2012) and The Burger Court and the Rise of the Judicial Right (with Michael J. Graetz, 2016).

 In her extracurricular life, she is president of the American Philosophical Society, the country’s oldest learned society, founded by Benjamin Franklin and celebrating its 275th birthday in 2018. She is one of two non-lawyers elected as honorary members of the American Law Institute, which awarded her its Henry J. Friendly Medal in 2002. She is a former member of the Harvard University Board of Overseers and serves on several other non-profit boards. She is a graduate of Radcliffe College, Harvard, and earned a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale Law School, which she attended on a Ford Foundation fellowship.
