The News Isn't Fake, But It's Flawed

49th Hays Press-Enterprise Lecture

Presented by: Frank Bruni, New York Times Journalist and Best-Selling Author

Bio: Mr. Bruni's career at The Times spans 20 years and includes stints as a White House correspondent, the chief restaurant critic, and the Rome bureau chief. In his Op-Ed columns, he reflects on diverse topics, including American politics, higher education, gay rights, religion, and entertainment.

The Hays Press-Enterprise Lecture Series was established in 1966 by the late Howard H (Tim) Hays, then editor of The Press-Enterprise, in cooperation with the University of California, Riverside. In 1997, his son Tom Hays endowed the lecture and the Hays name was added to the title in honor of Tim Hays. Dallas-based A.H. Belo Corporation, former owner of The Press-Enterprise, has provided generous support for the Lecture Series. The intent of the Hays Press-Enterprise Lecture Series is to bring to Riverside each year someone of exceptional achievement in journalism to address important topics related to the news media, thereby furthering the knowledge and interests of both the university and the community at large.

Bruni was very thought provoking and constructive. He projected well. The mikes with which we heard questions from the audience weren't set up right and they consistently squealed. Apparently he couldn't understand those posing questions all the time and I just plain left. Is there such a thing as an "acoustic engineer"? Yes, I wear hearing aids. Did you notice the average age of the audience? That is also the age group most likely to be leaving you money.
