About The Course
The course will examine the role of a free press in democracy, why both are under attack today, how readers can tell the difference between accurate news and fake news, what makes a credible news story, what is the difference between straight reporting and opinion, how to write a compelling editorial/op ed and how I have managed to go over five decades from covering a small town in Massachusetts to traveling the world with eight secretaries of state.
