Carnegie-Knight Forum: Who Makes the News?


Journalism and the State of Our Democracy

On the eve of the 2016 elections, join Carnegie Corporation of New York and Knight Foundation on Facebook for a discussion about the media’s role in influencing the outcome of the race for president.

The discussion will draw heavily from two recent reports highlighting Shorenstein Center research on media coverage of the election and a panel discussion on the role of journalism in democracy. 

Date:     Wednesday, September 28, 2016
Time:    11 a.m.–12:45 p.m.
