      EVENT DETAILS
      Peter Copeland - Finding the News: Adventures of a Young Reporter

      Copeland started in journalism as a night reporter in Chicago and capped his career forty years later as editor and general manager of Scripps Howard News Service. In between he worked as a war correspondent in Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa, covered politics in Washington, and wrote books including Living with Our Genes. His memoir details his behind-the-scenes experiences reporting on events such as Operation Desert Storm and the U.S. invasions of Panama and Somalia, but the heart of this account is a reflection on the core values of journalism. Arguing that accuracy and fairness are more essential than ever, he calls on today’s reporters to return to the trade’s old-school foundations.
