Communication and Journalism
David Gordon, emeritus, wrote an opinion piece for the May 2004 issue of the monthly publication of the International Society of Weekly Newspaper Editors. The article, titled "Findley's column oversimplifies issues," responded to an earlier opinion piece by Paul Findley, a former congressman from Illinois, which presented Findley's views of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Gordon also presented a workshop on the history of the United States news media at the World Press Institute June 21 at the University of Minnesota. The presentation began a two-week seminar on the roles and responsibilities of a free press in a democratic society. Ten Latin-American journalism professors (eight of whom also are media professionals) participated in the seminar. Go to top of page
