Industry Insights: When covering communities, how close is too close?
Wednesday, October 9, 2019
6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Wallis Annenberg Hall (ANN), 106
Join USC Annenberg students and alumni for an industry insight conversation about the coverage of marginalized communities. How can we help make sure that the story that needs to be told is told in an unbiased way? We want to explore the criticism that comes from some in the industry who caution journalists of color being “too close” to their story.
