Do professional storytellers have the right training and incentives to make difficult judgments about who gets a voice and who gets castigated publicly for their sins? Or should journalism stick to the less exalted but still challenging work of getting facts right? Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Carolyn Cole, editor of the Guardian US John Mulholland, and Adam Clayton Powell III, director of Washington Programs for the USC Annenberg School of Journalism, examine what journalists owe to society—and to the real people whose stories they tell. Moderated by Paula Ellis, journalist and former Knight Ridder executive. Presented in partnership with Zócalo Public Square.
