Media junkies, take note

Posted By on Wed, Apr 25, 2012 at 11:27 AM

Two programs on media bias in the next two days:

This evening, at the Clinton School for Public Service, Joseph Torres will talk about "News for All the People," a book he co-authored on the history of race and the American media. Starts at 6 p.m. Reserve your seats by emailing publicprograms@clintonschool.uasys.edu, or calling 501-683-5239.

Tomorrow at 6 p.m., the UALR Department of Sociology and Anthropology is hosting a screening of "Miss Representation," a documentary about the media's portrayal of women, which will be followed by a panel discussion. Leslie Peacock and I will participate along with Times columnist Graham Gordy and AY's Angela Thomas. All happens in the EIT Auditorium. Free, but reservations required.
