Journalism and the free press are essential to a healthy democracy, but trust in media organizations is lower than at any time in recent history. The Knight Foundation’s Trust, Media, and Democracy initiative aims to understand why this is happening and what can be done restore that trust.

Alberto Ibargüen is the president and CEO of the Knight Foundation and joined us for a conversation on the role of the free press in a democracy and the future of journalism.

Our guest host was Jenna Spinelle, host of the Democracy Works podcast produced by the McCourtney Institute for Democracy at Penn State.
