For our final program of the season we are delighted to host David Sarasohn, renowned Oregonian columnist, as our speaker.
In the Age of Trump, the media is under unprecedented attack; accused of spreading “fake news” while swimming in a sea of propaganda distributed by numerous shady forces. David will provide his perspective on today’s news business and how it is standing up to the president.
David Sarasohn made fun of politicians for The Oregonian from 1983 to 2013. In 2008, Sarasohn was a finalist in commentary in the American Society of Newspaper Editors contest, and his work is included in "Best Newspaper Writing, 2008-2009." His columns have twice won First Place awards in the "Best of the West" contest, and he won the 2002 Pulliam Fellowship for Editorial Writers. He has written two books, and his articles have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Harper's and The Nation.
He graduated from Trinity College in Connecticut, received a Ph.D in American history from UCLA, and taught at four colleges before “falling into bad company” and becoming a journalist.
