Meet the media and discuss the state of the world

Some of us are too busy worrying about the state of our own businesses to think too much about what's going on in the larger world and especially to worry about how the media handles the news.

But that's part of the work of the Communications Department at John Carroll University. And they're giving you a chance to listen in on the discussions between them and local media folks about this stuff. Here's the announcement:

David Marash, Washington bureau chief of Al-Jazeera, will analyze the current state of world media and the U.S. response to the new information universe at a free, public media roundtable discussion sponsored by the Cleveland Council on World Affairs. Area professional journalists will join Marash in exploring issues of accuracy and access to current news and news organizations. Student representatives from local universities and local news
media organizations will participate.

Where: John Carroll University, Donahue Auditorium at JCU’s Dolan Center for Science and Technology
When: Tuesday, Jan. 22 - 2 to 3:30 p.m.
Contact: Linda Clark, Director of Global Programming, Cleveland Council on World Affairs (812 Huron Road, Suite 620, Cleveland, Ohio 44115)
