Three leading journalists in our region will explore the challenges facing journalism in “As a Matter of Fact: Journalism Under Threat”, a discussion to be held at the Walpole town hall on Wednesday, February 28, at 7 pm.
The panelists include Paul Miller, executive editor of the Keene Sentinel; Kristen Nevious, Director of the Marlin Fitzwater Center for Communication at Franklin Pierce University; and Nancy West, publisher of InDepthNH.org, our state’s on-line center for public interest journalism.
The three will explore the threats that journalism faces; the ways in which reporters at legitimate news organizations work to verify their information; the pernicious concept of “fake news”; and how social media is challenging our concepts of news and perhaps even of truth itself.
A discussion with the audience will follow.
If February 28’s weather cancels the event, it will be held on Thursday, March 1, at 7 pm at the Walpole town hall.
This event is sponsored by the Fall Mountain Alliance, a forum for informed community engagement.
