Program Sponsor:

The creative disruption of traditional media is bringing about a crisis in local journalism and changing the role of journalists in a changing America. In this age of information overload, who and what do we trust and how do we become smarter news consumers?

  • How is data journalism bridging tradition and innovation to provide a deeper understanding of our world?
  • Do emerging business models aimed at “saving” news organizations threaten journalistic independence?
  • In the age of podcasting, where do we draw the line between information and entertainment? What are the challenges of a reporter becoming part of the story?

 

Interfaith Lecture Theme :: Media, News, and Ethics in the Digital Age

The world community now experiences a 24/7 barrage of news and information that penetrates all aspects of the world’s culture – indeed, that not only shapes commerce, consumerism, and world affairs, but also permeates the private sphere.  What are the ethical obligations of information consumers?  Of the community?  What are the ethics of reporting and advocacy?  How does the citizen discern truth and make ethical choices in the face of Big Data and big distortions?  In this week we will ask how to stay afloat in the flood of information-overload.
