Media shapes the way we see our world. News was once a nightly newscast for average Americans with a television set, but today it has become a 24/7 hub of information and constant updates -- thanks to news networks and the internet. And now, with innovations in social media, the broad public has a say in the conversation. With a panel of experts, we will discuss whether increased access to news leads to public enlightenment or oversaturation. How has our world changed since the days of a three news network society, and has it changed for the better? This discussion at New York University’s Washington D.C. campus will consider how public participation has changed the American media market, the news we consume, and the news that is produced today.
