Sirico Parables book

Trust in media institutions is at a historic low. Much of the country is overtly hostile to "fake news". The media is desperate to recover its authority, even as it has become more biased, less substantive, and less civil in recent years. Is there a way for media institutions to regain respect and uphold the dignity and responsibility granted them in the First Amendment?

Join us at the Acton Institute on September 28th as we welcome Mollie Hemingway, senior editor of The Federalist as she explores the "Crisis of Credibility: The Promise and Peril of Media's Lost Authority".
