The Wild West of the Web, The First Amendment, and Saving the News

Harvard Law School professor Martha Minow joins Berkeley Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky—a renowned legal scholar who has argued First Amendment cases before the US Supreme Court for a live, online conversation exploring what role—if any—government regulation and action can, and should, play in taming the forces that now threaten the very existence of a free press and democracy itself. Veteran reporter/producer and Berkeley emeritus professor Lowell Bergman will moderate the discussion, adding his own perspective on the history of the regulation of electronic media.
