The Missoula Public Library will host Humanities Montana's The Informed Citizen program, “What Happened to the News?” with Professor Dennis Swibold of the University of Montana School of Journalism. This is the second program of a three-part series at the library that explores the role of journalism in a democratic society.
Never has so much news been available. The trick is knowing how to find it and how to judge its credibility. This program, presented by a veteran journalist, author and educator, takes listeners behind the curtain to reveal how the news is made and explain the revolutionary changes facing today’s fast-paced news media. It also offers citizens tools and techniques for staying well-informed amid the virtual blizzard of information and for participating directly in the civic debates crucial to their communities, state and nation.
