The Trump administration’s Federal Communications Commission recently made a rule change that opens the door to more aggressive mergers of media companies.

Join POLITICO for a timely and important conversation about the future of the news business and how the media are responding to the rise of partisan tribalism. We will explore the implications of the FCC’s new policy and of the Sinclair merger in particular.


At a time of rising political polarization, disrupted business models and proposed media mergers, are we witnessing the end of journalism as we’ve known it?
