The explosion in digital and social media is fueling political polarization, creating a storm of misinformation and eroding democratic discourse. The need for reliable journalism is greater than ever, but trust in traditional news organizations is collapsing even while their financial difficulties grow. Dr. Henry Laurence will present the important role of public broadcasters in the digital age, as well a history of public broadcasting since its origins on the radio in the 1920’s.
