Michael Levitin, a Forestville native and editor-in-chief of Occupy.com, will speak on “The Media Renaissance: Is Our Fake President Pushing Journalism into a New Truth-Telling Frontier?,” at the Windsor Democratic Club on Thursday, May 25, at 7 p.m.
Mr. Levitin worked as a Newsweek correspondent in Berlin for many years, covering European politics and culture, before returning to the Bay Area, where he reports on politics, climate and activist movements that are reshaping America. As a member of Indivisible Berkeley and a contributor to the KPFA Project Censored program, he will discuss ways that the anti-Trump protests have ignited a new politics of resistance, starting with the media.
Mr. Levitin will share his perspective regarding how a new generation of journalists have been energized to report the truth in an environment in which the current president regularly makes statements that are verifiably false. An atmosphere reminiscent of the Nixon Watergate scandals has motivated journalists to continue to report the truth of the administration’s involvement with Russia during the 2016 campaign.
The meeting is at the Windsor Round Table Pizza, 8499 Old Redwood Hwy. The program is free and open to all. Pizza will be served.
