Slow News:A Manifesto for the Critical News Consumer

Events | Headline and Cultural Forums

Could it be that our quest for instant information has made it more harder to uncover the truth and see the larger picture behind breaking events? With wit and thoughtful analysis, veteran journalist Peter Laufer examines the nature of news in the context of the increasingly frenetic pace of modern life and 24-hour news cycles. Taking a cue from the slow food movement, Laufer suggests that we step back from the constant barrage of instant news to consider news thoughtfully and thoroughly.  Join Laufer as he discusses his rules, inspired by Michael Pollan’s Food Rules, that offer a roadmap to guide us in a gradual quest for slower, more accurate news.
