Laurier panel explores the state of journalism 

In an era defined by “fake news” and unprecedented political spin, what is the purpose of journalism? How are traditional news outlets adapting to a changing media environment? What can we learn from start-up news outlets about how to produce journalism that audiences find meaningful?

These important questions will be explored during a public panel discussion taking place at 7 p.m. ET on March 6 on Wilfrid Laurier University’s Brantford campus. Participants include Kathy English, public editor of the Toronto Star; San Grewal, founder of the Pointer; and Erin Millar, founder and CEO of the Discourse. The event is being live-streamed by faculty and students in Laurier’s Digital Media and Journalism program.
