Freedom of the Press Under Trump

Nov 2, 2017

A month into office, President Trump declared the press to be the enemy of the American people. By several measures, hostility against journalists is ratcheting up. Beth Am Synagogue has asked four journalists to analyze “press freedoms under siege.”

We’ll hear from Ben Jacobs, a reporter who was bodyslammed by a Republican congressional candidate last spring, And TV producer David Simon, a former Baltimore Sun reporter, who will kick off the series this weekend.

"Press Freedom Under Siege: The 1st Amendment & the Jewish Commandments" will be held on 11/4 & 12/2, at 1 p.m at Beth Am Synagogue in Baltimore.
