IVCC professor Amanda Cook-Fesperman has teamed up with other experts to discuss the state of the media, the first amendment, and identifying fake news.

The events have been taking place both at IVCC and at La Salle Public Library.

Fesperman discussed issues from the Pentagon papers and press issues from the Vietnam War.

She discussed different ideas such as press pools, embedded journalism and ban of pictures of military coffins and how it was lifted in 2009.

She claimed that even though we have more media available now we have had, press has been under attack for 15 years due to government censorship. There is concern that the internet is under attack and that politicians will silence the messenger.
