News and Journalism in the Age of Trump

Traditional news is facing disruption from all sides. Digital media are unraveling the advertising-based business model, an environment of political hyper-partisanship is undermining the idea of objectivity in reporting and the emergence of alternative sources of information, from so-called "fake news" to commercial and institutional propaganda, is challenging even the very notion of truth.

Join Wall Street Journal Editor in Chief Gerard Baker for a review and discussion of these far-reaching developments and their implications for political and civil discourse in a modern democratic society.

This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition 500 Years of Treasures from Oxford. The exhibition gallery will be open for viewing before and after the program. For more information on the exhibition, please visit cjh.org/oxford.

Presented by: Corpus Christi College, Oxford; the Center for Jewish History; & Yeshiva University Museum
