Ghosting the News: Local Journalism and the Crisis of American Democracy

By: Margaret Sullivan

Meeting Date: June 5, 2024 6:30 PM

Meeting Location: Olmstead Linear Park Alliance Offices

We will discuss “Ghosting the News,” a book about the decline of newspapers, the loss of their coverage of local government and politics, and why this lost coverage threatens democracy. The book offers some ideas about what might replace newspaper reporting.

Sullivan is the media columnist for the Washington Post. She was the public editor of the New York Times and editor of the Buffalo News.

We will look for lessons about government and politics in a post-newspaper world for Urban Atlanta.
