Tonight: Editor of Slate speaks in Middlebury
Interested in journalism and the future of news? How about international watchdog groups or web publishing?
If any of those topics tickle your fancy, you might consider dropping by Middlebury College’s Bicentennial Hall tonight for the Meet the Press lecture series, where seasoned editor, author and columnist Jacob Weisberg will discuss how newspapers fit or don’t fit into government.
As the executive editor of the Slate Group — the internet publications division of the Washington Post Company — and former head of Foreignpolicy.com, Weisberg will talk about “Government Without Newspapers.” Things will kick off on Feb. 20, at 7:30 p.m. in room 220 of McCardell Bicentennial Hall — that’s the massive science building with the driveway off of Route 125: http://www.middlebury.edu/media/view/148791/original/2008campusmap.pdf.
