Reporters, media activists to tackle topic of NATO press
coverage

National Writers Union, Chicago Chapter
PRESS RELEASE: For Immediate Release
Contact Kim Scipes, Chicago Chapter Chair, 773-615-5019,
[log in to unmask]

The Chicago Chapter of the National Writers Union, UAW
#1981, AFL-CIO, is convening a public forum this Friday to
tackle the issue of press coverage for the Chicago NATO
summit. The forum is scheduled for Friday, May 18 from 6:30
- 8:30PM at Rosa's Lounge, 3420 W. Armitage Avenue (near
Kimball) on Chicago's west side.

Attendees are encouraged to stick around at Rosa's after the
forum breaks up - the tavern's moniker, "The Friendliest
Blues Lounge in Chicago," suits what is regarded as one of
the city's most authentic and entertaining inner-city blues
bars. The tavern is asking an entrance fee of $10.00, which
includes both the panel discussion and the night's live
music, Nick and the Ovorols. Light snacks will be provided.

"Journalistic Coverage of the NATO Meetings in Chicago: A
Professional Overview" is designed to give news
professionals and members of the public a chance to unpack
the character of coverage in the run-up to the NATO summit
in Chicago, from its factual accuracy to its professional
bias. Join us for this unflinching and lively look at the
state of the news and the newsroom today, including
questions and dialog from the floor. Our panelists:

* Jon Hilkevitch: the Chicago Tribune's transportation
reporter since 1997 and a 33-year Trib veteran who
previously worked for the paper as a local reporter and an
editor on the National and Foreign desks, as well as in
Washington. In 2001, Hilkevitch co-led a team of Tribune
reporters in their series "Gateway to Gridlock,'' which
chronicled the capacity crisis confronting the airline
industry and the nation's commercial airports. The work the
Pulitzer Prize for explanatory journalism.

* Paul Street, Ph.D.:  Author of six books - including two
acclaimed books on Barack Obama - and co-author with Dr.
Anthony DiMaggio of a 2011 book on the Tea Party - Dr.
Street is a widely-published journalist on urban and
political affairs. Street has a doctorate in U.S. History at
Binghamton University and has taught at numerous colleges
and universities in and around Chicago. He was Director of
Research and Vice President for Research and Planning at The
Chicago Urban League from 2000 to 2005, and is currently an
independent policy researcher, historian, journalist,
activist, political commentator and speaker based in
Chicago, Illinois and Iowa City, Iowa.

* Stan West is a former foreign correspondent for the San
Francisco-based Pacific News Service, and remains a working
journalist, reporting for the Wednesday Journal. A
documentarian who co-coordinates the Oak Park International
Film Festival, West has written and co-authored several
nonfiction books. He also teaches writing, television and
first-year seminar at Columbia College Chicago.

* Chris Geovanis is co-founder of HammerHard Media Works in
Chicago, a worker-run non-profit collective of media
professionals and activists committed to media advocacy,
skills-sharing and movement-building in partnership with
grassroots progressive groups. She's a long-time activist
and leader in the world of alternative media Chicago,
working with collective members on issues that range from
rank-and-file trade union democracy and immigrant rights to
Palestinian solidarity and police brutality. Active projects
today include tactical and public relations planning in
projects revolving around police brutality, anti-war
initiatives, and media access issues. Most immediately, she
and her cohorts are working to bring information and
alternative coverage of NATO summit opposition directly to
the people through @natoindymedia, @chicagoimc,
chicago.indymedia.org and natoprotest.org

* Karen Ford, Third Vice President of the National Writers
Union and Treasurer of the Chicago Chapter, is moderating.
