Name: Denison: 'Scandalous Voices: Journalistic Truths'
Date: April 19, 2018
Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
The Robbins Hunter Museum in partnership with Denison University presents a roundtable featuring approaches to current concerns in the news media at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 19, at Herrick Hall Auditorium (600 West Loop). Denison University faculty/staff/students and members of the Robbins Hunter Museum are invited to attend free of charge. For general admission, tickets are $20 and may be purchased by visiting www.robbinshunter.org. For more information, contact Gill Wright Miller at millerg@denison.edu or 740-587-6766. “Scandalous Voices: Journalistic Truths” is about the media’s accountability for journalistic “truths” and “falsities.” Speakers include Max Abelson, Bloomberg News and Business Week; Myra MacPherson, Washington Post and CNN; Julie Carr-Smyth, Associated Press; and Mary Yost, Columbus Dispatch. It will be moderated by Sally Crane Cox, former editor of the Granville Sentinel. The roundtable is part of a three-year program celebrating the interests and concerns of Victoria Claflin Woodhull, a native of Homer, Ohio, and the first woman to run for U.S. President in 1870. Woodhull and her sister were the primary contributors and editors of a newspaper, The Weekly, known for its radical views, some of which are still quite controversial today. Many of the issues the sisters approached are still relevant- woman’s rights, labor laws, and revealing frauds on Wall Street. This roundtable’s discussion, the second in a series, will tie the sisters’ interests to today’s issues of journalistic integrity, relationships between the media and administration, and the need for visible truth in media.
