Meet Chris Daly
- May 8, 2018
The author of Covering America comes to DC on Wed., May 9th, at 6:30PM.
Journalism is in crisis, with traditional sources of news under siege, a sputtering business model, a resurgence of partisanship, and a persistent expectation that information should be free. Covering America: A Narrative History of a Nation's Journalism places the current crisis in historical context, showing how it is only the latest challenge for journalists to overcome.
In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, the factual basis of news is contested and the government calls journalists "the enemy of the American people" or "the opposition party." Veteran journalist Christopher B. Daly brings history to bear on the vital issues of our times and considers the place of legacy media like the New York Times and Washington Post in the current news landscape and how Facebook, Twitter, and other social media have disrupted how news is delivered and disseminated.
