As a listener of Boise State Public Radio, you’ve probably heard David Folkenflik’s reporting on the press. As a news media journalist working for NPR, he’s covered dramatic shifts in the industry over the last 20 years, with the internet disrupting both commercial and non-profit news outlets among one of the most consistent themes. 

He also literally wrote the book on Fox News, called “Murdoch’s World: The Last Of The Old Media Empires.” 

Thursday at 5 p.m. Mountain time, Folkenflik will give the keynote lecture for the University of Idaho’s Oppenheimer Media Ethics Symposium. He spoke with Idaho Matters in advance of the virtual talk, which is free and open to the public.
