Social media channels—such as Facebook, Twitter and Google—are making it easier for reporters to seek out diverse voices and reach out to new audiences outside their local markets. But while social media has been instrumental in driving traffic to news organizations, political interest groups have also used it to manipulate news coverage and public opinion in a way that has had an impact on the US political process.  

Join WGBH and the New England Center for Investigative Reporting for this timely panel asking “Is social media killing journalism?” This panel features experts representing diverse viewpoints. Light reception to follow.
