In the 1960s and ’70s, there were but a handful of ways Americans got information: the “Big 3” networks or the afternoon paper.

As the speed of news began to increase exponentially, the afternoon paper became the morning paper, and cable news was born. What was once a daily digest of news wrapping up during the dinner hour became a became an advance look at the day, and news available at your fingertips 24/7.

In the decades since then, there has been an explosion in the number of outlets through which people can get information. Almost anyone who has access to the Internet can create some sort of information outlet. That’s both a good thing, because of the diversity of opinion associated with a wide variety of outlets, but also a bad thing. How do people know what’s correct, and what might be erroneous?

John Roberts has been an eyewitness to this ever-expanding Multiverse of news and information. He can offer insights into where it’s going, the effect on daily lives and democracy and suggestions for what users should keep in mind.

In this thought-provoking address, John Roberts draws on his decades of work as a journalist for the most prestigious media outlets as well as countless personal stories to describe the current U.S. political landscape, including how we arrived here, and his ideas for a hopeful future.

Always on the pulse of current events, John Roberts can moderate your panel or emcee your event with finesse. Having interviewed numerous prominent figures including former presidents George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush, and Bill Clinton; former vice president Al Gore; the late Yitzhak Rabin; and Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf; Roberts is well equipped to guide conversation and ask the right questions to draw out the best value for your audience.
