Episode 48: Political Non-Neutrality in the Press – 25th Annual IPLJ Symposium
This week, we’re proud to bring you our third installment of the 25th Annual IPLJ Symposium, “Political Non-Neutrality in the Press.” This panel discusses the deficiency of presenting multiple viewpoints in the press. As news organizations become more polarized, it appears the public grows more and more polarized as well. The Fairness Doctrine, introduced in 1949, required the presentation of news and public issues in a neutral way by requiring representation of multiple opinions or viewpoints of an issue. While this doctrine was limited to broadcast, this panel explores how a similar requirement could apply across all press organizations.
Moderated by Professor Corey Brettschneider, Fordham University School of Law
Susan Buckley – Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP, First Amendment Senior Counsel
Mark Conrad – Fordham University Gabelli School of Business, Associate Professor
