For Tuesday’s class — and a note about Thursday

For class on Tuesday:

  • We will finish off All the President’s Men and discuss
  • Then move from recent history to much older history of journalism: please read Chapter 20 in Stovall.

Two other notes:

  • There is now a copy of Stovall on reserve in the library.
  • A week from today — Oct. 8 — at 4pm, is an Emerson-sponsored talk on the future of journalism that I strongly urge you to attend. So strongly, in fact, that attending — hopefully, asking a question! — and writing about the talk will be the only way to get extra credit this semester.

Here’s the info:

Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist and author Alex Jones
will speak on the Future of News
When: 4- 6 pm, Thursday Oct. 8
Where: Semel Theatre, Tufte Performance Center, 10 Boylston Place
Reception to follow

Jones has been director of the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government since July 1, 2000.  He covered the press for the New York Times from 1983-1992, and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1987.  He was host of National Public Radio’s On the Media from 1993-1997, and host and Executive Editor of PBS’s Media Matters from 1996-2003. His third book, Losing the News: The Future of the News that Feeds Democracy was published this summer.
