Today from noon to 5pm (Eastern time), CJR’s United States Project is teaming up with the journalism school at the University of Texas at Austin for an event in Austin titled, “The State of Accountability Journalism in the State of Texas.”
A livestream of the proceedings will be available below. We’ll also be live-tweeting the event here. Tune in to hear folks from the Associated Press, The Dallas Morning News, the Texas Tribune, the Houston Chronicle, Univision and more discuss the evolving ecosystem of accountability-oriented media in Texas. With a population boom underway in the state, the need for strong public interest journalism here is growing.
