Event Description

At a time of “fake news,” “alternative facts,” and political polarization, veteran journalist Linda Greenhouse trains an analytical lens on a moment of remarkable transition in American journalism. Today, news stories and headlines employ language once reserved for opinion pieces or for private conversations among journalists.

At stake are fundamental questions about the nature of the press, most significantly notions of objectivity and balance that have become increasingly fraught in the Trump era.

Is there a new role for the press? What challenges lie ahead?

Linda Greenhouse is the Joseph Goldstein Lecturer in Law at Yale Law School and a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist. She is a contributing op-ed writer for The New York Times.

China's "Opinion Deterrence" with Isaac Stone Fish

"I think it's important to contrast what China is doing with what Russia is doing," says Asia Society's Isaac Stone Fish. "Russia influence operations and Russia influence is much more about sowing chaos, it's about destabilization, it's about making America weaker. China is much more about making China stronger. The United States is a vector and a way for China to become stronger." Elon Musk, Alibaba, and China's internal power structures are also discussed in this wide-ranging talk.

American vs. Chinese Propaganda, with Robert Daly

How is this different from filmmaking in the World War II and Cold War eras? And why did the Chinese government have a problem with Cookie Monster and Grover?
