WASHINGTON, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The challenges to journalists are coming fast and furious: Access denied; outright falsehoods; alternative facts; sources afraid to talk. The National Press Club Journalism Institute, the club's professional training affiliate, is joining forces with another non-profit dedicated to journalism education, the National Press Foundation, to host a half-day symposium on the morning of April 19. Our panelists will include beat reporters and industry leaders. The goal: to help the working press begin brainstorming on how to navigate the treacherous landscape facing us today.
9am - 10:15am
Introduction: Kathy Kiely, Press Freedom Fellow, National Press Club Journalism Institute
Panel I: When journalism becomes politicized: How is access being denied? Are reporters being threatened? What are beat reporters seeing-- or not seeing? What differs from past practice?
- Moderator: Barbara Cochran, president, NPC Journalism Institute board of directors
- Margaret Talev: Bloomberg, White House Correspondents Association incoming president
- Coral Davenport, New York Times
- Kevin Johnson, USA Today
- Caitlin Emma, POLITICO
10:30am - 11:45am
PANEL II: What journalists can do: How should we react when colleagues are excluded, sources refuse to identify themselves? Do boycotts or group actions make sense? How do we counter accusations and false charges against us, or fake news? We will share workarounds.
- Moderator: Sandy Johnson, president, National Press Foundation
- Carrie Budoff Brown, Politico
- Terry Murphy, C-SPAN
- Chris Isham, CBS bureau chief
- David Lauter, LA Times bureau chief
