The President of the United States has challenged the legitimacy of journalism. What is his intent and can he succeed? What is the proper response from the journalistic community? Are some news organizations “out to get him” as backers of the president have alleged? Is President Trump actually good for the news business that he routinely assails?
While the president has riled up his base by repeatedly accusing venerable news organizations of peddling “fake news” and being “enemies of the American people,” two of nation’s most respected newspapers — The New York Times and The Washington Post — are experiencing record numbers of digital subscriptions.
On October 16, at the National Press Club, New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet and Washington Post Executive Editor Marty Baron will join moderator Marvin Kalb to discuss the administration’s threats to press freedom and the extraordinary relationship between the president of the United States and the media.
