Hot Mess: The State of Politics and Journalism in Florida

Florida is generating controversy like never before. Yet there are far fewer newspaper journalists covering what’s going on. And those who are left often find themselves under fire from the politicians they cover and struggling in newsrooms that keep getting sold and traded on Wall Street, often shrinking with every transaction. A look at how Florida politics—and the news outlets covering it—have changed in recent years.

  • What is the state of newspaper newsrooms in Florida today?
  • How about the future?
  • Why does Florida seem to be at the forefront of the nation’s political news almost every day?
  • Is that healthy? Obviously “no!”
  • What is our responsibility?
  • What can we do?

Expect to be informed and entertained while you laugh and get mad. There will be lots of education for action from this event. Register early. This will be a sell-out!

Lunch includes a delicious plant-centric menu with fish/meat options catered by Cuisiniers.
