Free Speech

"Taming the Messenger: New Threats to Press Freedom" with Nick Gillespie, Wed, 11/5

|

I'm speaking at what is shaping up to be a great debate event tomorrow at The Newseum in Washington, D.C.

Sponsored by the great Spiked Online, the day's panels are dedicated to preserving Free Speech Now.

In the first discussion, "Taming the Messenger: The New Threats to Press Freedom," I'll be talking with Spiked's Brendan O'Neill, Al-Jazeera's Ray Suarez, and the Committee to Protect Journalists' Courtney Radsch.

In the second debate, "The Press in the 21st Century: Are we all Journalists Now?," the panel will ask whether "citizen journalism" helps or hinders journalism's pursuit of the truth.

The "Taming the Messenger" panel starts at 9.15 A.M. ET and the doors open at The Newseum at 8 A.M.

The event is free but you need to sign up.

Please go here to RSVP.

Note: I mistakenly gave the time for my panel as 10 A.M. in an earlier post. The correct time is 9.15 A.M.
