Is Freedom of the Press Under Siege?
Freedom of the press is one of the basic principles of our country, the essential foundation of our democracy. We rely on the press to speak truth to power.  Now more than ever. We rely on journalists, not politicians, to inform us. And we have a President who belittles, demeans and challenges the media at every turn.

Join us as four elite journalists explore the nature of freedom of the press in this extraordinary and unprecedented moment in America. While President Trump has labeled the media the "enemy of the American people" and the opposition party, journalists soldier on, through strange and chaotic White House press conferences, where many have been belittled and insulted. This program will address questions such as, what is the role of a free press? What is the role of investigative journalism now? How difficult will it be to report the truth? And whom do we believe? Whats up with the President and CNN, anyway? Additionally, we will learn what reporters on the front line face, and how they protect their sources and themselves.

Participants include:

Dylan Byers, Senior Reporter for Media and Politics, CNN;

Cathleen Decker, veteran political campaign journalist and presidential politics analyst for the Los Angeles Times;

Karlene Goller, media attorney and former Vice President, Legal and Deputy General Counsel for the Los Angeles Times.  Known as the "consummate reporter's lawyer."

Due to a family emergency, Adam Nagourney, Los Angeles Bureau Chief for the New York Times and former Chief Political Correspondent for the New York Times, will be out of town.

Moderated by Kevin Roderick, former Pulitzer Prize winning reporter for the Los Angeles Times and editor/publisher of LAObserved.com , a news site for Los Angeles on politics, media and culture.
