State of the Media

Our traditional sources of news are in a state of transformation. In some cities, newspapers have been shuttered. Other newsrooms, both print and television, have shrunk dramatically, leaving fewer reporters and editors to provide in-depth coverage of a community. Still, a plethora of news and information is readily available on the internet and through social media channels. On this program, we discuss the current state of the media with current and former journalists including the ability of news consumers to judge the accuracy of reporting and the role of the media in politics and public policy debates. Our panel includes John Alexander of Elon University School of Law, Frank Aycock of Appalachian State University, Grant Jackson of the Columbia Chamber of Commerce, Grady Johnson of SC Biz News.
