Ford Hall Forum Vice President and former Real Paper journalist Monica Collins assembles this riveting Real Paper reunion with Harper Barnes, Jan Freeman, Laura Shapiro, Paul Solman, and Mark Zanger. Hear how this free newspaper’s laudable format of an employee-run collective was, ironically, its undoing as the opportunity to sell arose, as did interpersonal conflict. Their experience with The Real Paper yields surprising views on modern-day journalism, including sustainable and fair business models, the future of free newspapers in a world of internet media, and whether journalists in today’s economy should strike out on their own.
