Ann Compton, a former ABC News journalist and member of the White House Press Corps, will explore the intersections of media, politics, and public discourse in America today. Reflecting on her 41-year career, Compton will discuss the responsibility the media has to reconnect and engage with everyday Americans. How can the media overcome the hurdles of rampant fake news, fractured news consumption, and general disdain? Compton will go back to the basics, calling on her colleagues to approach each story with scrutiny, clarity, judgment, and honesty.
