Join us for a live taping of WAMC’s The Media Project: Real News in Challenging Times at The Linda, WAMC’s Performing Arts Studio. In an era when journalists are derided as “enemies of the people” by the president of the United States, and when Americans’ confidence in the credibility of news stories tends to reflect their political allegiance, what is the proper role of mainstream media as a check on government power? Can the media play a role in reducing divisions in society and making political decisions more thoughtful? Join The Times Union’s Rex Smith, WAMC’s Alan Chartock and University at Albany Professor Rosemary Armao for a live taping of The Media Project, the long-running nationally-syndicated program from WAMC Northeast Public Radio. There will be a question and answer session after the taping. Tickets to the event are free but must be reserved in advance on Eventbrite. Click on the reservations link below to secure a seat.
