“What to Do About Hedge Funds in Journalism?” is a panel discussion and documentary film fundraiser that addresses the question:  What can we do when billionaires with no background nor interest in a civic mission, who are only concerned with profiteering, take over our most influential news organizations?

That question is at the center of Rick Goldsmith’s film-in-progress, Stripped for Parts: American Journalism at the Crossroads, the story of a secretive hedge fund that is plundering what is left of America’s newspapers, and the journalists who are fighting back.

The panelists for our discussion include Stripped for Parts’ director Rick Goldsmith, a two-time Academy-Award-nominated filmmaker; two journalists, Julie Reynolds and Chuck Plunkett, who play outsized roles in our story; and Robert McChesney, the founder of the media reform organization Free Press. The panel will be moderated by Dan Brekke, KQED (SF) News reporter and editor.

We invite you to join us on April 14, for what promises to be an important and compelling discussion about local journalism in peril, and to contribute what you can to help bring this film to completion.
