Two New C-SPAN Videos With W&L Connections

W&L journalism professor Ed Wasserman on C-SPAN

If you missed them on C-SPAN television, there are two videos with Washington and Lee connections currently available from the C-SPAN Video Library. A recent installment of the C-SPAN weekly series, The Communicators, features an interview with Meredith Attwell Baker, the 1990 Washington and Lee alumna who is the newly appointed Commissioner to the Federal Communications Commission. Here’s the link to that program, which originally aired Nov. 23, 2009. In addition, C-SPAN’s production of the W&L Journalism Ethics Institute is available in its entirety on the C-SPAN site. The video includes W&L journalism professor Ed Wasserman’s introduction of Blair, the New York Times reporter who resigned in disgrace when the Times discovered that he had fabricated and plagiarized stories. In addition to Blair’s prepared remarks, the program has the length question and answer session, including numerous questions from W&L students participating in the institute. That video is available at this link.
