In this compelling PBS documentary, filmmaker Oren Rudavsky tells the story of early media mogul Joseph Pulitzer, an American icon who spoke of “fake news” more than 100 years ago, fighting the dangers that the suppression of news had for a democracy long before current threats to press freedom. Miami welcomes Rudavsky for a screening and Q&A to learn about how a once penniless Jewish immigrant from Hungary came to challenge a popular president, fight for freedom of the press, and change the face of American journalism.
