Long Island Media Task Force Meeting

Join us to discuss what our media has become and what we can do about it.

There are two main items this month:

  1. Introduction to Community Journalism. Community journalism focuses on a particular neighborhood, or perhaps a widely dispersed group such as migrant workers. Technology has made it possible for community journalists to connect with their readers from their own kitchen tables. We want to see who’s involved and how it’s working.
  2. Review and work on the Samantha Max interview. Samantha Max, a finalist in the Report for America project, is young, talented, bilingual, and techno-savvy. She covers health for the Macon Telegraph. We want to interview her at the beginning of her career. We are getting familiar with her articles and preparing a script for a Skype interview.

This is an a great time to be involved with the Task Force, as we extend our knowledge of the news ecosystem on Long Island, and reach out to the public about media issues.
