NY Times Public Editor to Deliver CUNY J-School Commencement

MargaretSullivanHeadshotThis will be a great speech. Margaret Sullivan, The New York Times’ public editor, will serve as the commencement speaker at CUNY’s graduate school of journalism on December 19.

Sullivan has only been with the Times since 2012, but in that short amount of time she has established herself as one of the paper’s best public editors.

“We’re delighted to have such a thought-provoking journalist, one who is constantly wrestling with the thorniest issues of journalistic ethics and integrity, addressing our graduates as they enter the field of professional reporting,” said CUNY Dean Sarah Bartlett, in a statement.
