Following an hors d’oeuvres and wine reception, a diverse group of journalists from local and national news outlets will share their perspective on the role the media plays in the national conversation on guns, particularly in an election year.

As the “information age” has become incredibly fast-moving and complex, the media’s power to inform, educate, and persuade has also grown. Meanwhile, the topic of gun violence in America remains complicated and fueled by passionate beliefs from all sides.
What are some of the challenges journalists and news agencies face when trying to tell the truth about America’s gun laws? What impact does the national political debate have on the media’s approach to this issue? How is “new media” affecting the way in which this conversation is cultivated?
Please join us to find out the answers to these questions and more. Come and ask your own questions for our panelists!

JOINING THE PANEL:

  • MARK FOLLMAN, Senior Editor, Mother Jones
  • KRIS HUNDLEY, Staff Writer, Tampa Bay Times
  • BOB EGELKO, Staff Writer, San Francisco Chronicle

No dissenting opinions allowed, thankyouverymuch. We already know the truth so your version of it need not apply.
