Cambridge Forums are free and open to the public.

Cambridge Forum presents "The Health of Democracy: The Role of the Media."

A free press and public access to information and a broad range of ideas and opinions were considered so essential for a healthy democratic republic that the Founders included protection for freedom of the press in the First Amendment to the Constitution. ALEX JONES, director of Harvard’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy, and CHARLES SENNOTT, founder of Global Post and The GroundTruth Project, assess how today’s press—print and electronic—is carrying out its mission. Where do current threats to a free press come from? How can citizens inform themselves in today’s media environment?
