About the Event

While family-owned newspapers throughout the US have collapsed, The New York Times survives and continues to thrive. It remains an indispensable source of national and international news even in the digital age. How have five generations of the Ochs/Sulzberger family successfully navigated economic and political challenges where other great newspapers failed? What critical decisions were made; how did they respond to internal crises; and why have they been able to harness the online media sphere to their advantage? What does the future hold? Mr. Jones will discuss whether The Times can withstand the continued assertions that the media is biased and partisan and cannot be trusted. He will argue that The Times must remain true to the press’s core mission of fact-based reporting in the face of threats to the values afforded by the First Amendment as well as the breath-taking advances in technology such as Artificial Intelligence.
