Event Description

A panel discussion on both the current and historic portrayal of Haiti in the news media.

A magnitude 7.0 earthquake in the capital of Port-Au-Prince on Jan. 12 has left thousands dead and homeless and the infrastructure destroyed, yet much of the mainstream press coverage has tended to blame the Haitian people for their current predicament, from correspondents calling starving survivors "looters" to a prominent U.S. religious figure declaring that the country had made a "pact with the Devil."

Erin Aubry Kaplan, journalist and former columnist with the L.A. Times, Joanne Griffith, freelance journalist and former correspondent with the BBC will be among the featured panelists. A donation of $5 will be requested at the door to go towards Haitian relief efforts.
