USD Podcast Credit Hour Interviews Newseum Institute President Gene Policinski
“If I had to take away one thing from my career, it’s the sort of wonderment that there are so many good people in the process,” Policinski said.
Gene discusses how free speech impacts protests, the impact of technology on media and his favorite Al Neuharth story.
“Gene’s knowledge and experience of issues related to the First Amendment is unparalleled,” said Michael Ewald, host of Credit Hour. “USD is fortunate to have Gene as a supporter as he has been critical helping us invite some of the most acclaimed figures in media and journalism to campus in recent years.”
The First Amendment Center released on June 28 its 2018 survey on the state of the First Amendment finding respondents generally supportive of concepts like free speech. A majority consider “fake news” more objectionable on social media than hate speech. https://www.freedomforuminstitute.org/first-amendment-center/state-of-the-first-amendment/
