• “Fake News” Panel/Holiday Mixer- Dec. 4

    Setting aside the tweets of a certain chief executive, there is a serious problem in the public discourse surrounding disingenuous news reports. This isn’t something we can blame on the Russians—try looking at the demise of your local paper where employment nationally has been cut in half since 2002.

    Join the Sacramento Press Club for a discussion about the decline of the country’s major dailies as the traditional arbiter of valid news, the risks facing the American system of democracy and what the future might look like.

    Featuring a book reading and signing by Tom Chorneau, a former political reporter with Associated Press and the San Francisco Chronicle and author of a new novel: Enterprise Reporting: Can anyone ever trust the news again.

    Panel members:

    Dan Morain, editorial page editor and political columnist for The Sacramento Bee.

    Barbara O’Connor, emeritus professor of communications at California State University Sacramento and chair of the California Emerging Technology Fund.

    Tom Chorneau, former Capitol reporter and editor of Cabinet Report, a public education news service, since 2008.
