Real News, No News, Fake News: Reviving Local Journalism in Somerville Saturday, November 2 at ONCE Somerville.
In this second citywide event, Real News, Fake News, No News: Reviving Local Journalism in Somerville, news garden volunteers Lynne Doncaster and Prof. Gino Canella of Emerson College will give presentations on the challenges facing journalism from a local and national perspective. Then attendees will break into small groups to discuss “Headlines We’ve Never Seen” and think about ways to make sure that important news gets covered in Somerville going forward. At the conclusion of the discussion, attendees will be invited to be the first to take a survey on how residents get news about our city… and, of course, to join this new initiative and work with us to make sure that everyone in Somerville has the news they need to be informed participants in local affairs!
Co-sponsored by the Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism, DigBoston, and Somerville Media Center.
