Reclaiming the Public Square: Trust, Media and Democracy in Post-Election 2020

After the most polarizing election in American history, exacerbated by rampant online misinformation and echo chambers – what do we still have in common, and how do we heal our divisions? Where is Colorado’s post-Election 2020 public square, where we can come together for productive conversations that promote understanding? What is the shifting role of traditional journalism in a “post-truth” world? How might local media play a role in helping communities find and move toward common ground?
