The Pressure on the Press

The Media Under Attack and What PR Professionals Can Do To Help

As if the news media hadn’t already experienced enough change – now we’ve fake news, “alternative facts,” elected officials trying to strangle free speech, and citizen journalists acting as if only their opinions matter.  If any of this sounds interesting to you, join us on Thursday, October 11 at the monthly Bay Area LMA meeting at the Bar Association of San Francisco for a lively panel discussion (moderated by John J. Buchanan, Senior Communications Manager, Sheppard Mullin) featuring an outstanding group of seasoned journalists including Liz Wollman, Editor, West Coast legal Coverage, Bloomberg; Craig Anderson, San Francisco Editor, The Daily Journal; Ed Beeson, Assistant Managing Editor, Law360; and Ross Todd, Bureau Chief, The Recorder/ ALM.

We’ll look at look at how journalism has changed over the last few years; what challenges lie ahead; how PR professionals can best help the media; and how the media and PR people can/should all work together to ensure accurate, quality, unbiased reporting. We’ll also talk about social media and its ongoing impact on news, journalism and communications.
