Spend a day at Chautauqua Institution, a summer retreat promoting the arts, education, and recreation. We arrive in time to hear the morning discussion: Conversation Between Marty Baron and Eric Newton Executive editor of The Washington Post, Martin "Marty" Baron will be engaging Eric Newton in conversation about ethics in the digital age. Traditional media is constantly changing. Journalism might be negatively impacted by this change. Baron began his journaling career in 1976 at The Miami Herald. He has worked for major companies such as The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and the Globe. When he was a leader at the Globe, Post, and Herald, all three won Pulitzer Prizes. On the other side of this battle is digital transformation. Eric Newton is considered a global leader in this field. He expanded the media and journalism of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. During his time working with this foundation, over $300 million in grants were developed. The discussion between Baron and Newton sheds light on this issue from both perspectives.
