CITIZEN MEDIA FAIR TO EXPLORE PEOPLE POWER AND THE MEDIA
Concerned about the news media? You are not alone. Americans all across the political spectrum are increasingly dissatisfied with - and distrustful of - the performance of local and national news sources. A Citizen Media Fair to be held June 4 from 1 to 5 p.m. at Hamline University’s Klas Center will bring together journalists, media activists and concerned citizens to talk about what citizens can do to increase media accountability, quality and diversity. The fast-paced program will feature panel discussions, hands-on workshops, screenings of documentaries on the news media, and a keynote address by Air America Minnesota talk show host Wendy Wilde.
