BRINGING ACCOUNTABILITY TO PUERTO RICO: How the media has covered an island in turmoil
In the last five years, Puerto Rico has been roiled by a series of crises—from a bankrupt economy to a government beleaguered by failed leadership and a hurricane that decimated the island. This panel of journalists will examine how well the media has covered these connected challenges as well as the island’s ongoing attempts to restructure and recover.
