On Thursday, March 13, the Payne County Democrats will host representatives of newspapers and broadcast stations from around the county who will talk about their industry, how they cover elected officials, and how the internet has transformed the way we get information.
As the press faces challenges in the form of new kinds of media, people get more of their information via Facebook and Twitter. But social media generally doesn’t cover city council, county commissioner and school board meetings and everything on the internet must be true whether it is or not.
We hope you will join us. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting will start promptly at 7 p.m. Refreshments will be served. Our headquarters is located at 302 N. Main in Stillwater, south of Hastings.
