The McGraw Symposium: From Fake News to Virtual Reality - Journalism in the Age of Trump

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Rarely has the news media faced such an array of challenges. Amidst allegations of “fake news” and media bias, attacks on the freedom of the press – and sometimes, on journalists themselves – have been a feature of the most acrimonious relationship between the media and the Administration in a generation. Meanwhile, the pace of digital change continues to intensify, as newsrooms double down on video and experiment with new tools such as bots and virtual reality. At the fourth annual McGraw Symposium, sponsored by the McGraw Center for Business Journalism at the CUNY J-School, top editors from Time Inc., the Associated Press and Vice News will discuss the state of the industry. We’ll talk about how they’re tackling these challenges, transforming their newsrooms, and perhaps most important – where they see opportunities ahead.

The McGraw Center was established in January 2014 at the CUNY J-School to enhance the quality and depth of business news coverage. Through the McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism, the Center provides experienced journalists with grants and editorial support to produce deeply-reported investigative and enterprise stories on important business and economic issues. It also provides training, and funds scholarships and internships for J-School students who concentrate in business reporting.
