Recently, a suburban newspaper published the addresses of gun owners and WikiLeaks revealed a vast treasure trove of secret U.S. files. Where does the dividing line fall between privacy and the public interest? On Tuesday, April 9, the Deadline Club’s line-up of top experts in big data, media ethics and the First Amendment will debate the thorny issues related to secrecy, computer-assisted reporting, the Freedom of Information Act and more.
Panelists include Bill Keller, a Pulitzer prize-winning New York Times columnist and the newspaper’s former top editor; Jennifer LaFleur, Director of the Computer Assisted Reporting, ProPublica; Jeff Jarvis, author of Public Parts: How Sharing in the Digital Age Improves the Way We Work and Live and Director of the CUNY Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism; Susan McGregor, Professor at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism and former Senior News Graphics programmer at the Wall Street Journal Online; and Eve Burton, General Counsel at Hearst. The panel will be moderated by Jessica Seigel, Adjunct Professor at New York University Journalism School and former Chicago Tribune National Correspondent.
