Description: On June 1, 1980, the Cable News Network launched, creating the first 24-hour news channel. It marked the first major departure from the decades old model of television news broadcast twice a day. Then the internet swept the world, splintering not only televised news but print and radio as well. In the span of only three decades, the entire landscape of journalism changed. For most, we only see the external changes, the increasing need to curate our sources of information from an ever increasing number of choices, but what is it like for the people who work in the field? Dole Fellow Ron Marks welcomes his guest Jenna McLaughlin, national security and investigations reporter for Yahoo News. McLaughlin will share her experiences in working in a world-class non-traditional news agency, how she deals with the demands to constantly gather information for the 24/7 news cycle. She will also discuss how she balances the need to get the information out fast and the need to get it right. Jenna McLaughlin is a national security and investigations reporter for Yahoo News, where she focuses on the intelligence community, foreign policy, and other issues. McLaughlin previously covered intelligence and national security for CNN, Foreign Policy Magazine, The Intercept, and Mother Jones Magazine, following her graduation from Johns Hopkins University in 2014. The Dole Discussion Groups are made possible be a grant from Newman’s Own. This program is free and open to the public. No ticket is required. Accessibility: Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend University of Kansas sponsored events.
