Producing the news is an ever-more-complicated undertaking. It goes beyond the 24/7 pressures of competition, deadlines and protecting news sources. Owners, editors, reporters and on-air personalities face constant criticism about their coverage. In this session, our authors will discuss the challenges and what a "free press" might look like in the future.
