The Press and the Presidency: It’s Complicated!
Monday, June 1, 2015

From Thomas Jefferson, who maintained that "advertisements" were the "most truthful part of a newspaper," to Jimmy Carter, who lamented that his ancestors included "thieves...and journalists," the relationship between our presidents and the press has been a long and tumultuous affair.

On this edition of The Kalb Report, experts from both sides of the White House gates join moderator Marvin Kalb to discuss the sometimes nasty but always necessary relationship between the President of the United States and the press corps. Guests include former ABC News White House correspondent Ann Compton, Fox News Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry, USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page, former White House press secretary Mike McCurry, and historian Harold Holzer, author of “Lincoln and the Power of the Press.”

Why Murrow Matters in the Digital Age
Monday, March 23, 2015

We live in an age when people "read CNN" and "watch The Wall Street Journal." As venerable news organizations transform themselves to survive and thrive in a digital world, new competitors are attracting huge audiences, unencumbered by old infrastructures and empowered by technology.

This dynamic is driving innovation in the way news is gathered, sorted, reported and consumed. Not since Edward R. Murrow invented broadcast news during World War II has the world seen such a dramatic change in journalism. Just as important, Murrow established a standard of quality that has withstood the test of time.

On this edition of The Kalb Report, moderator Marvin Kalb explores how today's newsrooms can innovate while maintaining quality. Guests include CNN Senior Vice President and Washington Bureau Chief Sam Feist, BuzzFeed White House Reporter Evan McMorris-Santoro, Jon Sawyer, director of the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, and Wall Street Journal Deputy Managing Editor Gabriella Stern.

The Kalb Report: 45 Words
A Conversation with U.S. Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the First Amendment
Thursday, April 17, 2014

One sentence, just 45 words in length, proclaims and promises the freedoms that define American democracy. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, and the right to petition one’s government. It is the duty of the justices of the Supreme Court of the United States to interpret the constitution and to rule on the legality of legislation.

On this edition of The Kalb Report, Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg join journalist/scholar Marvin Kalb to offer their views of those 45 words in a rare glimpse behind the gavel and inside one of our nation’s vital branches of government.
