Heard on Campus: Dale Davenport

September 24, 2008

"It's not surprising to me that a great number of citizens don't trust us (the news media) like they used to trust us. Some people think we're McCain supporters and others say we're leaning toward Obama."

— Dale Davenport, editorial page editor of The Patriot-News in Harrisburg, Pa., during the inaugural Ben Bronstein Lecture in Ethics and Public Communications. The session, titled "Informing the Electorate — Ethically," was conducted Tuesday night (Sept. 22) in the HUB-Robeson Center Auditorium with Davenport ('66) and Jennifer Palmieri, senior vice president for the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C.
