Rebuilding trust in America: The challenge for journalists

On March 16, 2021, the Knight Foundation and the deans of the top journalism schools participating in the Carnegie-Knight Initiative on the Future of Journalism Education will gather industry leaders to discuss the growing debate over the traditional journalistic value of objectivity.

Moderator Nancy Gibbs, director of the Shorenstein Center at Harvard University, will be joined by Meredith Artley, SVP and editor-in-chief, CNN Digital Worldwide; Wesley Lowery, 60 Minutes correspondent at CBS News; and Sewell Chan, editorial page editor, the Los Angeles Times.

The panel will also feature student journalists from the Carnegie-Knight schools — including UNC Hussman senior Ruth Samuel — who will ask the panelists about what has driven the decline of trust in news and how they approach challenges of fairness, identity and advocacy in their work.
