Pulitzer Prize winner David Shribman - Goodrich Memorial Library in Newport on February 10 at 7:00 pm.

Newport ~ Veteran journalists Cynthia Skrzycki and Pulitzer Prize winner David Shribman will take a critical look at the state of news today in a talk at Goodrich Memorial Library in Newport on February 10 at 7:00 pm. Their talk, “Confused by the News?” is part of the Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays lecture series and is free and open to the public. (Please note this talk takes place on a special date on the second Wednesday of February.)

Skrzycki and Shribman’s talk will examine the contemporary news scene with an eye to helping people discern truth from untruth, professional from amateur, and the enduring from the ephemeral.

Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. He came to Pittsburgh from The Boston Globe where he was assistant managing editor, columnist and Washington bureau chief. He served as national political correspondent for The Wall Street Journal, covered Congress and national politics for The New York Times, and was a member of the national staff of The Washington Star. Mr. Shribman was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1995 for his coverage of Washington and the American political scene.
