News Leaders Debate Civic Role of Journalism
SUMMIT NJ: Five leading journalists discuss the essential purposes of news, and the needs of our democracy in the next 15 years. This 'non-partisan, no-blame' forum steers clear of finance and politics, and focuses on citizens as creative problem-solvers. Terry Baker (Al Jazeera America), Mark Di Ionno (The Star-Ledger), Jim Schachter (WNYC), Kate Tomlinson (New Jersey Monthly), and Mary Alice Williams (NJTV) share stories, passions, and perspectives on their careers and lives.
