VPR host Jane Lindholm offers ways for listeners to ensure that the news they are getting is accurate, and for news organizations to safeguard their reporting as fair and correct.
Co-sponsored with Vermont Public Radio.
The First Wednesdays talks that are supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in partnership with the Pulitzer Prizes are part of the “Democracy and the Informed Citizen” Initiative, which is administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils. The initiative seeks to deepen the public’s knowledge and appreciation of the vital connections between democracy, the humanities, journalism, and an informed citizenry.
