Description

Danny Schechter “The news Dissector,” launched a media career in Boston on WBCN Radio. He became a Nieman Fellow in Journalism at Harvard, a reporter at WGBH, a producer at WLVI and WCVB, and then went on to CNN and ABC News where he won two Emmys. However, he believes media, the field in which he has worked for four decades, is harming our democracy. Are major corporations capable of presenting the news effectively? Can independent media — empowered with the tools of a technological revolution — do any better? Schechter looks back on his journey from Boston to the world stage and explore the rapidly changing ways in which we receive our information.
