Censored: Is This the New Media Landscape?

February 26 to January 1, 2018

7 p.m.

Censored: Is This the New Media Landscape? Shouts of "fake news" and "big media bias" overshadow larger and more troubling recent trends around access to news and information. In recognition of Freedom to Read Week, Vancouver Public Library presents a panel of journalists and information specialists to discuss censorship in the new media landscape. Tina House is a video journalist with the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network. Her work includes coverage of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, Standing Rock, and the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion. She is a proud M├ętis from B.C. Gurpreet Singh is a columnist with The Georgia Straight. He quit Radio India due to a lack of freedom of expression and co-founded Radical Desi magazine. Laura Tribe is OpenMedia's Executive Director. She has an interest in the intersection of human rights and information communication technologies, and has worked with Canadian Journalists for Free Expression and various tech startups.
