If journalism was once meant to convey the truth, it has failed—more so recently than ever before. Can it be saved? Does it matter?

The nobility of the journalistic profession—it used to exist for the vast majority of Americans. No more. Between a pandemic and a couple of incredibly fraught presidential elections, the public has felt manipulated and, as a result, soured by the media class.

Now, media itself is dispersing and American citizens have taken the matter of information relation into their own hands. But that leaves us with a serious question: How do we know who to trust?

If you’ve ever wondered what the next few years look like for the journalism industry, join Young Voices for our first Round Robin in New York City, in partnership with America’s Future.

We’ll be hearing from veteran journalists, Nick Gillespie and Caroline Vik in a conversation on the nature of faith in media and the shape which media will take in a post-truth world.

What’s more, there will be drinking.

Come—learn, discuss , and meet new people. See you there.
