Jay Rosen, perhaps our most astute observer of the press, is coming to McCarthy Recital Hall, Saint Michael's College this Wednesday, February 1st, to ask and answer the question, “What do we need from journalists now that Trump has been elected?”
Rosen is one of the Trump administration’s most visible and influential critics on issues surrounding journalism and the First Amendment. He has 189,000 twitter followers, has been quoted in every major U.S. newspaper and has appeared on Bill Moyers Journal and more recently on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, and other national television outlets. A long-form blogger and creator of PressThink, Rosen has written two pieces that are considered blueprints for journalists covering a presidency that threatens First Amendment protections. The pieces are “Winter is coming: prospects for the American press under Trump” and “Prospects for the American press under Trump, part two.” This rare opportunity to hear this important and engaging speaker is open to the college, the public, and the press.
