How is News Made

The Dill Pickle Club of Portland is sponsoring an interesting event on Friday that will explore how does journalism contribute to public life?  What is the media’s civic responsibility? “How Is News Made?,” a walking tour that will examine the ecology of the local news media.

Tour sites include: KGW NewsChannel 8, The Oregonian (meet with the paper’s managing editors, Therese Bottomly and Susan Gage) and a discussion with local experts on new media with Portland Mercury Reporter Sarah Mirk, Willamette Week Special Projects Reporter Corey Pein and Urban Honking Co-founder Mike Merrill. More info and tickets here:


  1. Thank you for sharing this information. I am registered to attend the event and am happy to share my observations at class on Monday if anyone is interested. Sara.
