News Literacy Project event packs GW’s Lisner Auditorium


Three of Washington’s leading journalists discussed “America’s Changing Role in the World and How the Press Covers It” before an audience of more than 1,100 at George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium on Nov. 13.

The panel featured Thomas L. Friedman, foreign affairs columnist at The New York Times, and Andrea Mitchell, chief foreign affairs correspondent at NBC News and host of MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. It was moderated by Gwen Ifill, co-anchor of PBS NewsHour and moderator of Washington Week.

The event was produced by the News Literacy Project in partnership with GW’s School of Media and Public Affairs.

Qualcomm and The Washington Post were the lead sponsors.

This was NLP’s seventh such forum in the past five years.
