These are trying times for the American news media. Crippled financially by Craigslist, eBay and Google, berated day and night in presidential rants,

NJC Member Mike Himowitz spent 44 years as a reporter and editor for newspapers, magazines, Web sites and radio. He’ll share his experiences, concerns and hopes for a New Normal on NJC Connects with a talk entitled “FDR, Donald Trump, Cragslist and the Shabby State of the American press.
