“For a free press as a check on power, now is the darkest time in American history since World War I,” Jay Rosen has written. But this is a complex development that goes well beyond Donald Trump’s reckless attacks on the news media. It involves failures in journalism, and shifts in the underlying media system, as well as an organized movement, to discredit the mainstream press that predates Trump’s political career. Join NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen as he unfolds his perspective on these events and explains his new project: US ambassador for De Correspondent, a Dutch news site that is “optimized for trust” and will soon expand to the American market.
Special guest: Ruth Ben-Ghiat, Professor of History and Italian Studies at NYU, will give a 10-minute response. She is an expert on Italian Fascism who speaks and writes frequently on authoritarian rulers and the rise of Donald Trump.
Jay Rosen has been professing journalism at NYU since 1986. He is the author of the blog, PressThink, and a press critic with a focus on the coverage of politics.
