We are in the time of the fleeting inside campaign gossip story. From Game Change to Politico, news survives in the homes and lives of those running for public office. Does that explain why professionals are running from public office? Where has the real news gone?
Following her very public exit at the apex of journalism —a peak that is truly extraordinary in the world of news making— Jill Abramson will be with us on Tuesday, July 15 to shed light on the rapidly changing landscape of political journalism. Join us for this incredibly rare opportunity with the former deputy bureau chief of the Wall Street Journal and former executive editor of the New York Times to discuss why important events and voices of our voters and country are getting less news focus.
Please join The Common Good for this riveting discussion as part of our ongoing Leadership Series on Tuesday, July 15.
