Cardin, David Simon to discuss future of journalism
Sen. John Kerry will be chairing a Senate hearing tomorrow on the future of journalism, and a couple of prominent Marylanders are scheduled to testify.
First up will be Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin, the Maryland Democrat who has introduced legislation that would allow newspapers to operate as non-profit organizations. Later comes Wire creator David Simon, the former Baltimore Sun reporter who is now among the newspaper’s most prominent critics.
Also scheduled to appear before Kerry’s commerce subcommittee on communications, technology and the Internet will be Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington, Dallas Morning News publisher James M. Maroney, former Washington Post managing editor Steve Coll and former Miami Herald publisher Alberto Ibarguen.
