AN INTELLIGENT TIMES EVENT
Intelligent Times is a live event series collaboration between The New York Times and Intelligence Squared, bringing together leading New York Times journalists and thought leaders to discuss the key issues facing the globe today.
In the era of Brexit and Trump, there has been a dramatic increase in political polarisation and a decline in public trust in traditional media outlets. How can newspapers and other established news organisations uphold the values of transparency and truth-telling, while also reaching out to audiences on both sides of the political divide? Join Dean Baquet, The New York Times’ executive editor and the renowned historian Simon Schama on Thursday, November 14th for an examination of the role of the media in today’s rapidly shifting political climate.
Is journalism itself under threat, when more than 20 percent of local U.S. newspapers have closed in the last 15 years and cost-cutting continues at many outlets? And when the truth itself often seems under attack, how can journalists continue to hold the powerful to account?
