Hinckley Institute of Politics to host “Terrorism and Today’s Media”

(Feb. 17, 2015) —Stories involving ISIS, Charlie Hebdo, and other events related to terrorism appear in the media daily, many accompanied by graphic images of violence. What are the ethical complications of covering terrorism? And how is the role of the media changing? Amos Guiora, professor of law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, will present at the Hinckley Institute of Politics on the subject with Bill Warren, chief marketing and communications officer at the University of Utah. Kirk Jowers, director of the Hinckley Institute, will moderate the event, titled “Terrorism and Today’s Media: Roles, Responsibilites and the Changing Dynamics of Reporting a War on Terror.”

The forum will take place Thursday, Feb. 19 from noon to 1 p.m. at the Hinckley Institute of Politics Caucus Room, Orson Spencer Hall, Rm. 253, University of Utah. Directions here.
