Covering Hate: When the KKK and Neo-Nazis are the Story
Who would have ever thought that we’d be covering demonstrations with neo-Nazis chanting “blood and soil” in 2017? In the wake of Charlottesville, U.S. journalists are brushing up on their knowledge of such groups. As journalists, how do we ensure even-handed coverage of clashes between white nationalist and antifa groups? And how does our love of the First Amendment guide us in covering public incidents where speech may be repressed? Where does speech end and violence begin?
The CUNY Graduate School of Journalism and The Deadline Club, which is the New York City chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, will co-host a panel about covering hate groups on Monday, Oct. 23. There will be a reception at 6 p.m., followed by the panel from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The following experts will explain the long history of these conflicts in American society, and why it matters today.
Panelists: Sandeep Junnarkar (@sandeep_NYC), Director of Interactive Journalism, CUNY Graduate School of Journalism; Marc Lacey (@marclacey), National News Editor, The New York Times; Ryan Lenz (@LenzSPLC), Senior Investigative Reporter, Southern Poverty Law Center
Moderator: Alex Tarquinio (@alextarquinio), President-Elect, Society of Professional Journalists
