Correction: The headline of an earlier version of this announcement incorrectly said that the discussion will take place at Georgetown University.
The Washington Post is proud to be a lead sponsor of "America’s Changing Role in the World and How the Press Covers It," hosted by the News Literacy Project and George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs. The discussion is free to attend and will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. in the Lisner Auditorium, located on George Washington University’s campus. The event will be moderated by Gwen Ifill, co-anchor of “PBS Newshour” and moderator of “Washington Week,” and will feature a discussion with Michael Gerson, Post columnist; Thomas L. Friedman, foreign affairs columnist at The New York Times, and Andrea Mitchell, chief foreign correspondent at NBC News and host of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports.”
The News Literacy Project is a national educational nonprofit organization that brings seasoned journalists into middle schools and high schools in the Washington, D.C., region, New York City and Chicago to give students the critical-thinking skills to sort fact from fiction in the digital age.
The Washington Post is proud to support the News Literacy project, especially through its partnership with the Young Journalists Development Program and the News Literacy Project to improve the journalistic skills, strengthen core journalism competencies and sharpen critical-thinking skills of high school journalists and media educators across the Washington area.
