Event Details

Are you skeptical about what you see in the news? Do you believe national journalists and news organizations are biased? Sure, you could write a letter to the editor, post a comment on a news site, or opine on social media. But here’s a rare opportunity to raise your concerns in person with national journalists, including representatives from NBC News, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Associated Press and BuzzFeed News.

Moderator: Pete Williams has covered the Justice Department and U.S. Supreme Court for NBC News since 1993 as a correspondent based in Washington, D.C. Stories he has covered include the Unabomber investigation, the Oklahoma City bombing, the Clinton impeachment proceedings, the legal wrangling over the 2000 Florida election results, the investigation following the September 11 terrorist attacks and the Robert Mueller investigation. Pete is a native of Casper and was a reporter and news director at KTWO Radio and Television from 1974 to 1985. He went to Washington in 1986 to serve as a legislative assistant and press secretary for Congressman Dick Cheney. In 1989, when Cheney became Secretary of Defense, Pete was appointed assistant secretary of defense for public affairs. He was Pentagon spokesman during the Persian Gulf War and military operations in Panama and Somalia.

Others participating in the discussion are Neal Lipschutz, Deputy Editor in Chief of The Wall Street Journal; Noreen Gillespie, Deputy Managing Editor at The Associated Press; Lori Montgomery, Deputy National Editor for The Washington Post; and Hayes Brown, World News Editor and Reporter for BuzzFeed News.

Neal Lipschutz is deputy editor in chief for The Wall Street Journal, where he helps oversee the newspaper’s global news operation. Previously, Neal was standards and ethics editor for The Journal. He joined Dow Jones & Co., the newspaper’s parent company, in 1982 as a national copy reader for Dow Jones Capital Markets Report. He held a series of news management positions of increasing responsibility at Dow Jones Newswires and was named managing editor for Newswires in 2005. He served as the top editor of Dow Jones Newswires until becoming standards editor.
