While a thriving and free press is critical to a democracy, the business models that drive most newsrooms — and the social platforms that carry their stories — may be influenced by and benefit from our polarized culture. A new Gallup/Knight survey finds many Americans are deeply concerned about objectivity in the press. How can we develop a news business that is both profitable and objectively informs the needs of our citizenry? On American Views 2020: Trust, Media and Democracy, hosted by The Paley Center for Media and supported by Knight, we’ll hear from Jesse Angelo, president of global entertainment at Vice Media; Jim Friedlich, CEO at The Lenfest Institute for Journalism; Elizabeth Green, co-founder of Chalkbeat and the American Journalism Project; Sara Lomax-Reese, president and CEO of WURD Radio; and Kristin Roberts, vice president of news at McClatchy News Service.
