Connections: The Presstitutes And The Future Of Print Journalism In The Digital Age

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

The Presstitutes is a new play written by Democrat & Chronicle columnist David Andreatta. It's a farce about journalists at a dying newspaper in Western New York who team up with a politician to save themselves.

We talk about the play's commentary on the state of journalism and politics in America today with our guests:

  • Dave Andreatta, columnist for the Democrat & Chronicle and author of The Presstitutes
  • Julie Philipp, senior engagement editor for the Democrat & Chronicle
  • Jeff Moon, director of The Presstitutes
  • Jim Memmott, journalist with the Democrat & Chronicle and professor at the University of Rochester
