His presentation at Rider is titled “The Impact of Terrorism in a Post 9/11 Media World: Can Journalists Still Deliver The Best Obtainable Version of the Truth?”

The lecture will be at 7 p.m. in the Bart Luedeke Center Theater, located on Rider’s Lawrenceville campus.  The event is free and open to the public.
