TODAY: The impact next week's election may have on newspapers. America’s Newspapers CEO Dean Ridings will moderate a discussion between Ashlee Rich Stephenson of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and Camille Olson, a partner with Seyfarth.
Among the concerns: Legislation like the Local Journalism Sustainability Act and the Journalism Competition & Preservation Act; the business climate for national and local businesses, and subsequently, advertising spending; tax laws and the impact on national and local businesses; employment laws, including regulations for independent contractors; and how newspapers can engage with their readers on critical issues, whether the "fake news" era continues or not.

Journalists shed light on vital issues that may otherwise be left in the dark. They expose problems and give citizens the tools they need to make informed decisions about issues that impact everyday life in their community.
