‘So Much Sex, So Much Politics, So Much War? What’s Fit to Print?’ Clark Hoyt, Public Editor of the New York Times, at Baruch May 5

Do you love the New York Times for the breadth and depth of its coverage? Or do you think it favors the haves over the have-nots, acts as a mouthpiece for liberals, or covers your favorite presidential candidate unfairly?

Clark Hoyt, whose job as public editor of the New York Times makes him the readers’ representative at the newspaper, will discuss his job with the general public in Baruch College’s Newman Conference Center on the seventh floor of the Information and Technology Building, 151, East 25th Street. Hear how he responds to complaints and comments from readers, while also keeping a critical and independent eye on the paper’s journalistic practices.

The event is hosted by Baruch College’s journalism program in celebration
of the 2008 issue of Dollars & Sense, the college’s annually published business magazine. A reception for Mr. Hoyt will begin at 5:30 pm, while the main program will start at 6 pm. For more information on the event, contact the journalism program at 646 312-3974.
