  • In Search of Truth

    September 13, 2021

    Moderator Marvin Kalb is joined by PBS NewsHour Anchor and Managing Editor Judy Woodruff, Washington Post Columnist Eugene Robinson and legendary ABC News Nightline Anchor Ted Koppel for an exploration of where our nation is in determining what is truth in a virtual event that premiered on Monday, Sept. 13.

    The one-hour program launches the 27th season of the Kalb Report, the Club’s leading public affairs forum, begun in 1994.

    After more than five years of basic truths and facts seemingly up for grabs, Kalb said he wants his guests to explore how the news media can help sustain democracy when a large portion of the electorate no longer believes it.

    “Without that commonly accepted understanding of basic truths, basic facts on which we base our government’s decisions, how do we maintain and then sustain a viable, functioning democracy?” asks Kalb.
