Corporate Media versus New Media

A conversation with:
Fred Turner
Assistant Professor of Communication, Stanford University
Author of the new book From Counterculture to Cyberculture
Daniel Kreiss
Ph.D. Student in Communication, Stanford University
Former independent journalist and blogger

Who controls the news? Is the nature of "news" really changing? Can the blogosphere work as a counter-balance to the corporate-controlled mainstream media? Is the new media reliable and trustworthy? For that matter, is corporate media trustworthy anymore? Has it ever been? What is the state of journalistic ethics? Please join us for a lively conversation on a topic of immediate—and lasting—importance.

Free and open to the public. Sponsored by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center.

The program will be broadcast and webcast live on Mid-Peninsula Community Media Cable Channel 27 and rebroadcast throughout October as part of the ongoing Other Voices television series produced by PPJC.
