The Daily Californian Anniversary Celebration - The President and the Press
Friday at 6:00 PM PDT
This event will be livestreamed on our Givebutter page: https://givebutter.com/DC150th
Join us for the first of The Daily Californian's anniversary events. On November 5 at 6 pm we will live-stream our program, The Press and the President. UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism Dean Geeta Anand will moderate a discussion between Daily Cal alumni, Margaret Talbot staff writer at The New Yorker and Washington Post columnist, Max Boot, as they analyze how reporters have interacted with the Trump and Biden administrations.
“We need to train a new generation of journalists that knows what facts really are and tells the story straight and helps to inform the American public to keep our democracy functioning. That’s an incredibly important function that The Daily Cal has performed in the past and continues to perform and can continue to perform in the future if all of us support it.”
— Max Boot, Washington Post columnist and Daily Cal alumnus
The Daily Californian holds a distinctive place in the world of university student newspapers. Established three years after UC Berkeley’s founding, the newspaper today covers the campus community of our country’s top public research university, the iconic city metropolis of Berkeley, the immense 10-campus UC system and more. Carrying on the Daily Cal’s long- standing tradition of winning top honors, in 2020 the California News Publishers Association’s California Journalism Awards named it the state’s top student newspaper in its General Excellence category.
Help us celebrate The Daily Californian's 150th anniversary and the 50th year of our independence. And, help support our work as we continue to train the up and coming journalists and professionals of the future while providing quality news to our local community.
