Welcome to the Restoring the Trust Website

The Journalism and the Public: Restoring the Trust website is now up and running. This is part of a one year project that Cole Campbell, dean of the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno and I are hosting in conjunction with the Public Journalism Network ( and Civic Journalism Interest Group in the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC). It is underwritten in part by the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation.

As you will see by roaming about this website, the big event will be the conference entitled: A Wake Up Call: Can Trust and Quality Save Journalism? The conference will be in San Antonio, August 9 to help open the AEJMC annual convention activities.

Also I will continue doing more IM Restoring the Trust Interviews. I sent out a few more invites today. Know someone who is doing interesting work in this area, contact me.

Any how, take a look around. Got any suggestions, or find any glitches let me know.

And of course start making plans for the conference now. In fact, register now and be done with it. You won't want to get shut out.

Much of the work here is supported by the Fowler Chair in Communication, which I hold, at Kennesaw State University.

Special thanks to Cori Marguriet, Griff Wigley and Chris Ward for all the hard work they put into making this website possile.
