News and Good News: Religion and American Journalism

Diane Winston of the USC Annenberg School provides an overview of the relationship between religion and journalism in the United States.

Winston will also offer an assessment of issues, challenges and opportunities for journalists covering religion at a time of dramatic flux — both in the world and in their profession.

Between 1983 and 1995, she covered religion at the Raleigh News & Observer, the Dallas Times Herald and The Baltimore Sun and contributed regularly to The Dallas Morning News.
