Save Media, Save the World

Posted By on Mon, Oct 29, 2007 at 9:01 AM

In the interest of needing a little saving myself, I'm putting a shout out for UA journalism professor Mort Rosenblum and his "Save the World" forum happening from 2 to 4 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 3, at J Bar, 3770 E. Sunrise Drive, Tucson.

Rosenblum will discuss his latest book, Escaping Plato's Cave: How America's Blindness to the Rest of the World Threatens Our Survival.

According to the UA Journalism Department Web site, "He will address what he calls 'the perilous state of reporting from abroad and the price we all pay as a result--and then I'll lead a discussion on what we might do in terms of getting better coverage, of keeping a closer watch on global crises.'

"Rosenblum firmly believes, 'We've got to stop saying, "You can't worry about what you can't change.' In fact, you can't change what you don't worry about."' He will contribute author's royalties to something that might help protect Tucson's environment, he says."
