What’s the news on the news?
How do you get your news?
Michael McIvor has some thoughts on the changing news delivery business.
Do you still subscribe to a newspaper? Do you watch TV news? Perhaps you find your news online? Do you share news with your friends on social media? What information we are exposed to, how we access it and how certain are we that it is accurate?
The sources of news and how we access it has changed dramatically over the last decade and these changes are having a profound effect on the quality and diversity of news and information.
Michael McIvor, a former foreign correspondent, programme host and documentary maker for the CBC, and host of Campbell River’s original Philosophers’ Café has thoughts on the subject he’d like to share.
Come to the Philosophers’ Café. McIvor will lead off the discussion with a 10-minute introduction then all who attend can join in respectful conversation, or just sit back and listen.
You are welcome to propose topics and introduce them at future Cafés.
Themes should be of broad interest and national significance, and have an element of controversy to them.
The Café is hosted by Peter Schwarzhoff.
On Wednesday, June 11 at 6:30 PM at the On-Line Gourmet Cafe, the public is invited to join in this free, hour-long conversation.
The Café will break for the summer, returning on Sept. 10 with a discussion on homelessness.
