2023: Journalism Under Threat

No two journalists are more respected and more conversant with the complicated state of their profession than husband and wife AL HUNT and JUDY WOODRUFF. She is a senior correspondent and former anchor of the PBS NewsHour, and he is a former Bloomberg News columnist and current podcast host of The Politics War Room. As they look around the country and the globe, they see how journalism is being threatened in many places—from small-town U.S.A., where local media outlets have often disappeared, to the myriad countries where reporters are being silenced. In conversation with ANNE TAYLOR FLEMING, Hunt and Woodruff will reflect on the state of journalism and its fundamental place in any democracy and share some hopeful, inspiring stories of reporters—many of them women—who are doing brave and amazing work to bring us the stories we need to hear.
