CRITICAL CONVERSATIONS: 2015 – Discussing Charlie Hebdo and media responsibility

Join the Critical Conversation as Communities editors and writers discuss accountability in politics, entertainment, media and sports.


2014 created numerous head shaking moments that have us asking “What ever happened to accountability?” Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Donald Sterling and sports. The media – does the media report or inflame? Bill Cosby has us asking about the “casting couch” environment that is legend in Hollywood. Actions by some police have resulted not only in the deaths and harrassment of far too many young black men. Where is the accountablity in Washington, DC? The lies, misdirection and scandals are not just on one side of the aisle.

Join Critical Conversations host Lisa Ruth as she talks about accountability in sports, politics, media, and entertainment with Senior Political Editor Jim Picht, business and entertainment editor Terry Ponick, writer and editor Gayle Falkenthal, and writer Eric Golub as they talk about accountability in 2015 and whether we can be better – as individuals or a nation.

Critical Conversations features the writers and editors of Communities Digital News talking about the headlines and the people making them. Thursdays at 6:30pm EST then available On Demand.

Listen here live at 6:30pm, EST Thursday and then available On Demand.
