FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The 2018 Holt Lecture will focus on gender equality in the workplace and institutions. Gretchen Carlson, formerly of Fox News, will join Professor Lisa Schweitzer for a forward-looking conversation on creating institutions which empower individuals rather than harm. Carlson is among many journalists and media personalities who have stepped into the light of public conversation regarding a rampant institutional blind-eye toward sexual abuses and exploitation.
“It’s wrong to conflate unfavorable news with fake news,” Ryan said. “There’s been troubling instances where fair but critical reporting by respected news organizations have been unfairly challenged as fake news. Wrongly applying the fake news label is an attack on the truth. It’s reckless and corrosive to our democracy when elected officials attempt to deliberately and systematically erode the credibility of news organizations because they object to factually accurate reporting.”
