Registration is closed

We are honored to welcome Jill Abramson, author of the eye-opening and important new book, Merchants of Truth, and preeminent broadcast journalist Lesley Stahl, to Talks@WMG for a conversation you won’t want to miss!

Abramson, who made history as the first woman to hold the title of executive editor of the New York Times, will offer us a scintillating insider’s look at the precarious state of the news business as she and Stahl discuss: 

  • The polarized media environment
  • What the New York Times learned from Buzzfeed and Vice
  • How digital journalism changed the news business 
  • Fake news, biased reporting, clickbait, hoaxes and rumors parading as journalism
  • The future of the news business
  • How the conservative media FOXified her book and led Trump to tweet that she confirms that the New York Times is "unmistakably anti-Trump"
  • Why it's important to have women in journalism during these times

We are facing a crisis in trust that threatens the free press. Abramson’s book points us to the future in what Publishers Weekly says is “one of the best takes yet on journalism’s changing fortunes.”

Simon & Schuster has generously provided lunch attendees a copy of Merchants of Truth.

Guests welcome.
