A panel discussion 6:00pm Monday, April 6th, 2009 at C. Walsh Theatre

Broadcast Journalists have been praised for breaking important news stories and criticized for breaking political candidates. Is the role of television news in our democracy to present politically neutral information or to provide informed opinion? 

Charles Kravitz, President of NECN, has had a distinguished career as a television news director at several stations in Boston. 

Dana Rosengard is assistant professor of Broadcast Journalism in the department of Communication and Journalism at Suffolk University.  Prior to his academic career, Dana was a producer for WCVB news. 

Robert Rosenthal is chair of the Department of Communication and Journalism at Suffolk University. He is an international consultant specializing in strategic communication, with a core emphasis on institutions subject to government regulation. A specialist in the field of political communication, Rosenthal is a frequent guest on radio talk shows and television newscasts.
