Special Event featuring Bill Kovach and Tom Rosenstiel

Thursday, December 16, 2010 | 7:30 – 9pm

Location: Great Hall, enter on 8th Avenue between Spring and Seneca

Amid all the anxiety over the “death of newspapers” and the reliability of a crowdsourced encyclopedia and opinion-based “news,” seeking the truth remains the purpose of journalism—and the object for those who consume it. Veteran journalists Bill Kovach and Tom Rosenstiel, authors of BLUR, offer a guide to navigating our modern media terrain, discerning what is reliable, and determining which facts (and whose opinions) to trust.

Presented by The Town Hall Center for Civic Life and University Book Store in association with the Washington News Council and Journalism That Matters. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust and the RealNetworks Foundation.

WNC President John Hamer will make welcoming remarks and introduce Kovach and Rosenstiel.

Former Seattle Times Executive Editor Mike Fancher will interview Kovach and Rosenstiel onstage, then open it up to questions from the audience.
