On Tuesday, January 23, The Washington Post will bring together top journalists, media scholars and thought leaders to discuss how Americans view the media’s role in our modern democracy.
The event will build on a survey of more than 19,000 adults in the United States, conducted by Gallup, Inc. and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, that reveals the most comprehensive picture to date of Americans' usage and attitudes toward the media. The program will explore:
• What makes people trust some news sources and see others as fake?
• The debate about regulating online digital and social media platforms.
• Can the concept of a neutral press survive in an era of hyper-partisanship?
