Liasson can be heard on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and “Morning Edition,” and she can be seen as a contributor on Fox News Channel. During her visit to the Grand Theatre, Liasson will explore the changing face of journalism and investigate how people currently consume news, the concept of freedom of the press and the recent successes and failures of media.

The Tanner Forum on Social Ethics brings nationally and internationally recognized speakers in the area of social ethics to Salt Lake Community College annually. The Tanner Forum enhances the College’s mission as a community-based learning institution by providing opportunities for the students, faculty, staff and wider community to come together for the thoughtful examination of critical issues in contemporary social ethics. The Tanner Forum on Social Ethics is funded in part by the O.C. Tanner Company.
