Tow Center: Dark Money, Local News and the 2024 Election

January 26, 2024
11:00 AM - 5:30 PM
Pulitzer Hall, 2950 Broadway, New York, NY 10027

The Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University’s School of Journalism is hosting a one day conference to discuss the implications of our upcoming report “Pink Slime: Partisan Journalism and the Future of Local News” – detailing the extensive, secretive connections between political donors, advocacy groups, and ultra-partisan local news websites in the United States.

This conference will bring together academics, journalists, and policymakers to discuss the future of local news and the relationship between journalism and electoral politics ahead of the 2024 US presidential election and how these hyper partisan sites may impact not only this year's elections but election reporting well into the future.

For all settings, the University continues to strongly recommend that affiliates stay home if they feel unwell and isolate according to CDC guidelines if they test positive for COVID-19.
