The panel of distinguished journalists and thought leaders in the field of journalism will address questions such as: How does daily news foster or inhibit problem-solving? Does the emphasis on breaking news distract the public from stories that may have less visibility but greater impact, such as reversing global warming? How could the news field empower citizens to solve society’s complex problems?
