Freedom of the Press and National Security in the Era of Trump: Reconciling Competing Values in Democratic Governance

Journalists and the government have a shared responsibility to protect the autonomy of the press, to keep the public duly informed, and to ensure accurate coverage of important issues affecting U.S. security. They must also grapple with the competing responsibilities to protect classified information from disclosure and to safeguard the public from deliberate misinformation or “fake news.” Laura Handman, partner at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP, James Risen, investigative journalist for The Intercept and First Look Media, and Charlie Savage, Washington correspondent for The New York Times debate these issues. Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, moderates.

This event is sponsored by the Center for Ethics and the Rule of Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School and co-sponsored by the Annenberg School for Communication, the Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication at the Annenberg School, the Penn Middle East Center, Miller & Chevalier, and the National Constitution Center.
