Online – “And That’s the Way It Is”: A Look Back at 70 Years of TV News with Brian Rose

Tuesday, January 24, at 7pm on Zoom

Television news has undergone remarkable transformations in the last seven decades. Brian Rose, a professor of Communications and Media Studies at Fordham University will present from the beginning with the Camel News Caravan to Walter Cronkite who became the anchor of the CBS Evening News to 24-hour news cycle 7 days a week. We will learn about MSNBC and Fox News Channel, which introduced a more partisan approach to news coverage that would have enormous implications for American political life. This presentation will look at these sweeping changes and examine the impact–both good and bad–of television journalism over the last seven decades.
