Fair Media Council’s new publication on Medium.com, The Latest, provides a broader audience for our exclusive commentary, with expanded news and opinions readers won’t find anywhere else.
It also includes Weigh In, an exclusive commentary section featuring the Fair Media Council’s Advisory Board discussing the latest trends in news, and more.
“The forum for Weigh In was specifically created to give our readers the opportunity to share their thoughts and insight and become part of the publication itself,” said Jaci Clement, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of the Fair Media Council.
Weigh In’s first question focused on the devolution of debate in America today, and the media’s role in that devolution. Featured commenters include Emerson Prof. Thomas Cooper, an expert on media ethics; Bruce Lambert, a journalist retired from The New York Times; Pulitzer Prize-winner Bob Keeler, formerly of Newsday, and Mashable Chief Correspondent Lance Ulanoff.
The latest question explores personal picks for story of the year for 2017.
Also included in the publication is the most popular commentary and information appearing in the Fair Media Council’s weekly newsletter, The Latest.
The publication has been made possible, thanks to underwriting by Northwell Health, Bethpage Federal Credit Union, Mazars USA, Farmingdale State College, St. Joseph’s College and The Garden City Hotel.
