Turley To Speak At Utah Valley University

I have the pleasure of speaking today and tomorrow at Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah. I will be speaking on Wednesday on “A Crisis of Faith: How Trump Has Changed Journalism in America.” The speech will explore the history and evolution of American journalism as well as the challenges presented in the last two years. While I have been critical of President Donald Trump over his attacks on the media, I also believe that American media has become more partisan and biased in its coverage. The speech will look at the changing standards and economics governing journalism in America.

The speech will take place at the UVU at the Fulton Library (Bingham Gallery).

The Center for Constitutional Studies at the Utah Valley University will hold the conference entitled 2019 First Amendment Conference: Freedom of the Press in Tumultuous Times.

It is another incredible conference by the CCS. I have had the pleasure of watching UVU blossom with the university itself into a major academic center. UVU is truly one of the greatest success stories in academic development and the CCS offers programs that bring together academics from all over the world.

The trip also brings me back to one of my favorite places in the world. As an avid hiker, Utah is an endless adventure of breathtaking sights and gorgeous trails. The national and state parks are experiences that everyone should enjoy at some point in their lives. I am hoping that news in Washington does not force me back prematurely but I brought my gear in the hopes of hitting the trails after my speeches in Orem.

  1. 40% OF TRUMP VOTERS CITE FOX NEWS AS THEIR MAIN SOURCE

    Forty percent of Trump voters cited Fox News as their “main source” of news about the 2016 campaign, according to the Pew Research Center. Next in line was CNN, which a mere 8 percent of Trump voters cited as their “main source.”

    That same survey drives at why Fox News deserves special consideration in the pantheon of influential media organizations. Voters for Hillary Clinton showed no corresponding devotion in terms of their news sources, as 18 percent cited CNN, 9 percent cited MSNBC, 8 percent cited Facebook, and so on. There’s simply no outlet that dominates any other part of the political spectrum in the way Fox News dominates the right.

    Edited from: “Yes, Fox News Matters A Lot”

    Today’s WASHINGTON POST

    1. “That same survey drives at why Fox News deserves special consideration in the pantheon of influential media organizations. Voters for Hillary Clinton showed no corresponding devotion in terms of their news sources,”

      What an ignorant analysis. It says Washington Post at the bottom, but it tells one how stupid the WP actually is or how intellecutally corrupt they are

    1. Tom, I put no faith in memes and never saw the meme in question.

      The truth is that liberals on my Facebook stream don’t necessarily welcome my comments. A lot of Bernie Bros unfriended me for telling them what I thought of their memes.

      1. I just assumed that’s where you got it, Peter.
        But even if something comes directly from the main news desk at ShareBlue or David Brock’s office himself, those sources aren’t always reliable.

          1. Again, even 6 % is not close to 40%.
            And if the Saudi’s holdings in NewsCorp stock was one time as high as 6%, Fox is a subsdiary of NewsCorp.
            I’ll have to double-check the current structure of NeesCorp, but I think it still includes Fox Studios and other entertainment and media entities.
            Disney stock was listed as another major holding of that Saudi investor.
            But I doubt if the Saudi was ever influencing or directing the operations at Disney World or Disney Studios.

      2. Peter Shill “The truth is that liberals on my Facebook stream don’t necessarily welcome my comments. A lot of Bernie Bros unfriended me for telling them what I thought of their memes.”

        and yet we are stuck with you though we have de-trolled you. How did we get so lucky?
