WASHINGTON D.C. — On May 20th, The Progress & Freedom Foundation will hold a briefing entitled, "Can Government Help Save the Press?" The event will examine government's proper role in assisting struggling media outlets, promoting "hard news" and "public interest" programming, among other matters. The briefing will kick-off with a keynote presentation from Ellen P. Goodman, noted media scholar and FCC official leading the agency's "Future of Media" proceeding. A panel discussion will then follow, with leading experts addressing a wide-range of proposals designed to have government prop-up today's challenged media landscape.
