Date TBA

When we debate the future of news, things can quickly turn grim. Establishment media organizations continue to face industry headwinds.

Smith, and the New York Times media columnist and founding editor of Buzzfeed News, Ben Smith, for a no-holds-barred conversation about the winners and losers of this fraught media landscape, and how companies need to evolve in order to succeed.
