The Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute announces its next “Newsmaker Breakfast,” a monthly event highlighting current issues impacting the State of Utah. The event will be held in the Ivory Ballroom of the Thomas S. Monson Center. A light breakfast will be served. 

February’s newsmaker breakfast will focus on the current state of media in Utah, the United States, and around the world. The Society of Professional Journalists operates under the premise that public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. In order to uphold this trust, ethical journalism aims to share information that is accurate, fair, and thorough. In the ever-evolving media landscape, journalists must contend with fake news, alternative facts, harsh scrutiny, the meteoric rise of social media, and a growing need for credible information.

The Salt Lake Tribune editor Jennifer Napier-Pearce and Deseret News editor Doug Wilks will be our guests in a lively discussion, moderated by Kem C. Gardner Institute director Natalie Gochnour.
