Hannah Arendt Center presents
Blogging and the New Public Intellectual: Discussion with David Frum
Tuesday, April 9, 2013
We live in the age of the blog. Public intellectuals and journalists must adapt to short news cycles, short attention spans, new economic models and a flood of competing commentary and information. The rise of blogs may be dangerous insofar as blogs attract like-minded people who only hear one side, but they are extremely powerful as well, insofar as they allow for people to become highly educated about the world by following a few top bloggers.
David Frum is a contributing editor at Newsweek and The Daily Beast and a CNN contributor. He is the author of eight books. Click here to visit Frum's Daily Beast Blog.
Time: 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Location: Bard Graduate Center, 18 West 86th St, NY, NY
