When Journalism Becomes Advocacy
October 3, 2018
First Congregational Church of Manchester
Journalist Carroll Bogert, president of the Marshall Project, offers a unique perspective on the line separating the media from activists, and considers what we gain, and what we lose, when journalism takes an obvious stand.
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.
