Media Capture: How the Mix of Money and Power Undermines Journalism

Monday, October 23, 2017 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm
National Endowment for Democracy

The topic of a new book published by the Center for International Media Assistance (CIMA) and Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, media capture is a growing phenomenon linked to both the resurgence of authoritarian governments and the breakdown of traditional media markets. In this environment, political figures and economic elites collude to undermine the independence of privately-owned media worldwide, re-interpreting fact from fiction as they determine what you hear, read, and watch. 

CIMA is holding a panel discussion on media capture that will be moderated by Internews President and CEO, Jeanne Bourgault. The panel speakers include Mark Nelson of CIMA, Andrea Prat and Anya Schiffrin of Columbia University, and Olaf Steenfadt of Reporters without Borders.
