2020: How Can News Media Regain Our Trust?

2020: How Can News Media Regain Our Trust?
A three-part course with Mike Berlin
Today’s news media—in print, on the air, and online—are each experiencing a time of trauma and a shifting sense of mission. Is the technology of the internet solely responsible for the financial crisis engulfing most news media? Is media bias new, or has it always been there? What is the impact of the media crisis on politics and the 2020 election in particular? What can—and should—be done? This is not a lecture course. Mr. Berlin will hand out a broad course outline at the first meeting, and offer a range of factual information as a basis for group discussion, with everyone free to participate. Please call us or stop by to sign up.
Mike Berlin was a reporter covering the UN and international news for over 20 years for the New York Post and Washington Post. He is an associate professor of journalism emeritus at Boston University, where he taught for more than 15 years. He was also a Fulbright lecturer in China and in Russia. He now lives in Truro, where he is working on a mystery novel/memoir set at the UN.
