FishbowlDC, always a good source for media-related events and news, has slightly overbilled an event that takes place tomorrow. It’s a discussion on “media business models and the role of philanthropy” and it’s hosted by the Washington Monthly and the New America Foundation.
Take a look at the screen grab above: Participating in one of the event’s panels is a great roster of thinkers, including the Atlantic‘s James Bennet and the Monthly‘s Paul Glastris. Yet whatever give-and-take those fellows have with Joan Shorenstein would have to be other-worldly in nature, because Shorenstein died in 1985 of cancer.
Matt Dornic, who posted the item for FBDC, writes, “Next time, I’ll make certain to call each person and verify that they are alive before pushing that notorious publish button.” He has corrected the mistake.
