Should financial media be held accountable for their failure to have warned the public of the current economic downturn? What steps are being taken to avoid this happening in the future? A panel of leading financial reporters assess the global crisis and discuss the ‘perfect storm’ of events that led to it. Aspiring journalists will hear how to avoid the perils and pitfalls of the profession, and media observers can decide for themselves if the media is to blame. With Charles Gasparino, on-air editor, CNBC; author King of the Club: Richard Grasso and the Survival of the New York Stock Exchange; Farnoosh Torabi, correspondent, TheStreet.com TV; Liz Claman, anchor, Fox Business Network; and Alan Murray, deputy managing editor, The Wall Street Journal; executive editor, Journal Online, and WSJ Television. Moderated by Jeff Bercovici, Blogger, “Mixed Media,” Portfolio.com.

Cosponsored by the Center for Communication and the New School Department of Media Studies and Film.

The New School is a leading university in New York City offering some of the nation’s most distinguished degree, certificate, and continuing education programs in art and design, liberal arts, management and policy, and the performing arts.
