Addressing Trust as an Element of Media and Democracy

Setup

This session considers the importance of trust, and a healthy distrust, in the well-being of a democracy and the role of the press in this equation drawing on the report of the Knight Commission on Trust, Media and Democracy released Feb. 5, 2019 titled, “Crisis in Democracy: Renewing Trust in America.” What measures should local journalism, social media, and the public take to remedy the crisis of public trust in democratic institutions, especially the press? After laying out findings and recommendations of the commission, the session will encourage dialogue from Festival participants in attendance.
