How Universities and Nonprofit Newsgathering Organizations Are Filling the Gap in Accountability Journalism Coverage

More than 40 years after Watergate, today’s newsrooms find it difficult to conduct in-depth investigations due to time and budget pressures. This growing trend has opened the door for universities with professional journalism programs, like ASU, to fill the gap.

In this presentation, Cronkite Dean Christopher Callahan and Cronkite Professor Leonard Downie Jr., former executive editor of The Washington Post, explore how universities and nonprofits can fill the gap in accountability journalism coverage. From 1972–74, Downie served as The Washington Post’s deputy metro editor, where he helped supervise the paper’s Watergate coverage.

Inside a Top Medical Journal

November 5, 2013 - 6:00pm

Journalists daily face the scrutiny of editors who go over their work carefully and critically and make or suggest changes. In the world of medical journals, where research outcomes can change the way doctors across the country treat patients, that scrutiny is provided by peers of the researchers — other investigators working in the same or similar fields who may suggest major changes to a submission or recommend that an article not be published. That in turn can have a major impact on whether researchers continue to get funding to run their labs and continue researching and whether they get tenure and promotion at universities and research institutions.

That is a major hurdle for medical and other science researchers today. But from a public perspective, can choices be influenced by researchers or behind-the-scenes firms with a financial stake in seeing the article green-lighted? Most seriously, how frequent is the occurrence of fraud? How common is it for researchers to manipulate their data or Photoshop their slides and other visuals in order to continue gaining funding and acceptance?

Finally, we know that the selection, placement and angle of news stories can have a major effect on public actions and even on public policy. Can medical reporting have this effect on public behavior or even how medicine is practiced?

Dr. William Lanier, editor of the Mayo Proceedings, will discuss this high-pressure process with Professor Emeritus Ed Sylvester, director of the Science & Medical Journalism Program at the Cronkite School. The Mayo Clinic Proceedings is one of the most widely read and highly cited peer-reviewed clinical journals for physicians and medical researchers.

Henry Ford's War on Jews and the Legal Battle Against Hate Speech

April 4, 2013 - 7:00pm

Victoria Saker Woeste, author and research professor, American Bar Foundation

What is the relationship between the right to free speech and self-expression under the First Amendment and the government’s authority to limit speech it deems “hateful”? What is the relationship between hate speech that is directed at an individual and speech that targets the group to which that individual belongs, and how have those relationships evolved during the past century?

In these presentations about her book, Henry Ford’s War on Jews and the Legal Battle Against Hate Speech, Victoria Saker Woeste examines these and other questions in the context of a lawsuit that made national headlines in 1927.

Co-hosted by the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, The Fellows of the American Bar Foundation, ASU Hillel and the Jewish Law Students Association.

Manhunt: The Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden

September 19, 2012 - 3:00pm

Author and journalist Peter Bergen recounts the pursuit of Osama bin Laden, the twilight of al-Qaeda and a transformative decade in American history.

Roughly a decade after Sept. 11, 2001, Americans celebrated the news that the mastermind behind the terrorist attacks had been found and killed during a raid on his home in Pakistan. Now, one year after Osama bin Laden’s death, Peter Bergen describes the raid with riveting detail in his fourth book on bin Laden, "Manhunt: The Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden from 9/11 to Abbottabad."

But the killing of bin Laden is only one element of a decade-long story. Where did he hide after the 9/11 attacks, and how did he evade capture? How did the SEALs prepare for Operation Neptune Spear? Why did President Obama decide to proceed with the raid despite the recommendations of two of his top three advisors that he not do so?

Who Can Vote? And How Will They Be Informed?

September 18, 2012 -
9:15am to 10:45am

The question of exactly how American citizens exercise their right to vote has become a source of partisan acrimony this election year. In a nation whose patchwork of jurisdictions feature conflicting voter ID and registration requirements, lawmakers struggle to strike a balance between safeguarding the integrity of the electoral process and encouraging voter turnout.

Tensions have peaked in response to legislative efforts to tighten ID requirements in key battleground states. This past summer, student journalists participating in the national Carnegie-Knight News21 program, headquartered at the Cronkite School, produced a major national investigation into voting rights in the U.S. As part of the project, the students gathered, organized and analyzed all reported cases of election fraud in the U.S. since 2000, building the most comprehensive database of its kind.

Join News21 and New America Foundation to learn more about the findings of this investigation and explore the broader issue affecting this year’s election. We will also examine the latest innovations in online voter information from Google and the Internet Archive.
