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.
