Local Journos to Debate Role of Media in a Democracy

On Sept. 28, the Paul Peck Institute for American Culture and Civic Engagement at Montgomery College will host a panel discussion on the media’s role in a democracy.

The event will take place at the Takoma Park campus from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Commons 211.

The panel will include an ethics professor and a number of “distinguished local journalists” who will consider and debate the proper function of the media in a democracy. The audience will be permitted to ask questions and make remarks.

Panelists will include Henry Allen (pictured here), Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist at WaPo; Jeremy Arias, staff writer for the Gazette newspapers; Eric Bond, publisher and editor of the Takoma Park, Silver Spring, and Rock Creek Voice newspapers; Daniel Jenkins, professor of philosophy/ethics at Montgomery College; and Carla Satinsky, producer of Montgomery Week in Review, who will moderate the discussion.

No reservation is required unless you’re a professor or instructor who wishes to bring an entire class of students. To make such a reservation, contact Francine Jamin at francine.jamin@montgomerycollege.edu or call 240-567-1385.
