In a recent New York Times opinion piece, journalist Lydia Polgreen highlights a growing division between “news haves and have-nots.”
While subscription-based news sources and user-supported independent outlets provide diverse options for engaged news consumers, media consolidation and downsizing in free-access platforms result in a diminishing range of choices. This leaves those who don’t pay for news to navigate a fractured information ecosystem that includes declining television news, social media, partisan outlets, and AI-generated news.
This has far-reaching implications for society and democracy. Join Pulitzer and Peabody award-winning journalist Connie Walker and Polgreen as they explore the current media landscape and its profound impact on our society and democratic values.
This in-person event featured Lydia Polgreen, of the New York Times in conversation with Pulitzer and Peabody award-winning journalist Connie Walker of Gimlet Media on the 54th floor of the TD Centre.
