Freedom of the Press and the Trump Administration
March 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On March 21, the UNC Center for Media Law and Policy is excited to host George Freeman, executive director of the Media Law Resource Center and former assistant general counsel of the New York Times Co. Mr. Freeman will discuss the challenges to press freedom that are likely to arise (and have already arisen) under the Trump administration. Mr. Freeman, who will provide opening remarks on this subject, will then sit down Professor Mary-Rose Papandrea, a noted First Amendment expert, for an open-ended conversation that explores the administration’s positions on executive branch transparency, journalists’ access to government officials, whistleblower protections, the scope of defamation law, and respect for journalists, among other topics.
The event will take place at 6:00 PM in room 5048 at the UNC School of Law.
