The New York Times 

 "All the news that's fit to print"???   Not everyone agrees!   Approximately 500 letters a week come in to the Public Editor of the NYTimes complaining about its coverage of the news.  Some deal with the big issues like the Israeli/Palestinian struggle. Some deal with lesser issues, like the Times's standard for vulgarity, which bans swear words.  Most of them are angry. 

Margaret Sullivan, the first female Public Editor of the Times, navigates these controversies, the big and the small.  It is her job to assess the validity of complaints and to support or challenge reporters on the legitimacy of their coverage.  A daunting job. 

Come to "Lunch with the League" on March 12 and hear Margaret Sullivan talk on   how she goes about the job of critiquing the most famous newspaper in the world.  This is a rare opportunity for us to hear how the Times monitors itself  in its mission to provide "all the news that fit to print" with equity and integrity.
