2016 Goldsmith Awards in Political Journalism with Keynote by Walter Isaacson


Associated Program:
John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum
Walter Isaacson

Walter Isaacson addressed the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum after reporters from the Associated Press were awarded the annual Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting for their work on “Seafood from Slaves.” He spoke about the intersection of technology and journalism in an increasingly interconnected global community. Isaacson discussed the broken business model of journalism, which he argues needs more support from journalism users rather than simply subscription models and advertisements.
