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?
For the past fifty years, Cambridge Forum has provided free public forums for the discussion of the issues and ideas that are shaping our world. From culture to technology, the environment to public policy, Cambridge Forum offers citizens vital information about the challenges facing contemporary society.
Forum programs, which are edited and produced for subsequent broadcast on public radio stations nation-wide, feature the nation's most noted thinkers, creators, social entrepreneurs, and leaders from the worlds of academia, business, government, media and the arts. Programs are held in Harvard Square with book sales provided by Harvard Book Store.
