Under Attack! Existential Threats to Journalism and Free Speech


The raid of the Marion County Record in the summer of 2023 spotlights just one of the potential perils journalists face as they gather and report the news in the face of shifting social, political and technological landscapes. From unlawful searches, seizures of newsrooms and the artificial intelligence revolution to physical harassment and calls for violence online, the facts and those who report them are under attack like never before.


Our panels of experts will examine how news organizations can keep overzealous law enforcement agencies at bay; how to counteract bias in the algorithms that bundle news content for consumers; ethical considerations involved in representing publishers and broadcasters trying to thread the needle between fact and opinion in an election year; risk management for AI-created content gone awry, and more.
