COMM 133: Need to Know: The Tension between a Free Press and National Security Decision Making (COMM 233)

The course will examine the dynamic interaction at the highest levels of government and the media when news coverage of secret national security policy and operations impinges on United States defense, diplomatic and intelligence activities and decision making. A prime example: the recent torrent of secret NSA programs disclosed by Edward Snowden in newspapers and other media. Attitudes, practices and actions by the media and the government will be explored through a series of case studies and simulations. Former editors, reporters and government officials will appear as guest speakers. The goal of the course is to inform students about the vital but often fraught relationship between a free press and the government in a democratic society, especially in the management of national security affairs. Preference to juniors, seniors, graduate students. The instructor is a former Washington bureau chief of The New York Times. By application only. Please e-mail chrissyj@stanford.edu to request an application. Completed applications are due by 5pm on March 21, 2014.
