USC Norman Lear Center  Studying and shaping the impact of entertainment and media on society. Based at @uscannenberg

Managing Director Johanna Blakley will be at the @acedtla this Saturday talking about our latest study, Are You What You Watch? Tracking the Political Divide Through TV Preferences.

Get your tickets at freakonomics.com/live.

"What happens to political journalism when political norms like civility, accountability, even the rule of law are in play...If journalism speaks truth to power, what does it speak to a circus?" Today we celebrate #worldpressfreedomday with these words by @martykster from our 2019 #Cronkite Awards.

"It was in its purest form an opportunity for this one community to speak truth—raw as it was—to power; to show the world what they felt at that moment...we were honored that they asked us to help them share what they were feeling, to be the conduit." Powerful words from @jaketapper accepting the #Cronkite Award for @cnn’s #Parkland Town Hall.
