OLLI @ UK Live Streaming: Osher at Dartmouth Lecture Series

OLLI
Worsham Cinema
Thursday, Aug 1, 2019 at 9:00 AM (ET)

Freedom of the Press


Speaker: RonNell Andersen Jones , Professor of Law, University of Utah Quinney College of Law

Speaker: Andy Phillips, Partner and Litigator, Clare Locke law firm (DC)

Moderator: Richard Tofel , President of ProPublica, a non-profit investigative journalism organization in NYC

Freedom of the press has been regarded as an essential right in a democracy in which the government is accountable to the people. A free media can be a watchdog that reports government wrongdoing, and it can be free to promote different and sometimes radical opinions on issues. Recently, as the media have proliferated and we have entered the digital world, many of them have reported blatantly inaccurate and "fake news". Some dark websites have become a forum for bigots, spewing hate rhetoric and inciting unlawful violence. Should some limitations be imposed?


These live streamed presentations from Dartmouth College are sponsored by the

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Kentucky.
