You’re invited to the 6th Annual LA Media Reform Summit at Occidental College
Good Grief – Who’s Going to Cover LA Now?
We’re focusing on a local issue: the LA Times. With the paper possibly looking at new ownership as its parent company emerges from bankruptcy, will a rumored buyout by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. or the Koch Brothers improve the paper’s news coverage? Would a different merger, sale, or consolidation better serve the community? If not, how will Angelenos get their local government news coverage - what will be the consequences of that shift? This half day summit will study these issues and bring to light new ideas for how to make LA news better.
