Press Club – How to Express Opinions in an Age of Divisiveness?

Wednesday, February 26 at 7:45 pm - 8:45 pm EST

 

How has social media and cancel culture changed the way news organizations and opinion writers express their ideas?

Does outrage threaten free expression? Does a more vocal public readership help to hold columnists more accountable?

How well are news organizations prepared to represent or respond to diverse viewpoints in the first place?

Have opinion writers shifted how they respond to criticism?

Moderator: Kathy English (Toronto Star)

Confirmed panelists:
Asmaa Malik (Associate Professor and Graduate Programs Director, Ryerson University School of Journalism )
Jesse Wente (Broadcaster/Commentator)
Robyn Urback (Globe and Mail current affairs columnist)
