Conversations on Privacy Media Expose spot

By Brooke Goldstein, AZPM Intern

The effect of every click and swipe of an internet user is reshaping journalism and society in general, and that’s reason to worry, said David Cuillier, director of the University of Arizona School of Journalism.

Cuillier will take part in a panel discussing the intersection of privacy and journalism Wednesday, Oct. 26 in downtown Tucson.

The discussion is the third in a series of discussions on privacy taking place at the Fox Theatre in Tucson through Nov. 16, hosted by the University of Arizona College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.

The effect of internet users’ activities touches on “a lot of issues dealing with, ultimately not just journalism, but our society and how we make decisions and whether or not we’re informed about those decisions,” Cuillier said.

Also participating is Associated Press reporter Jack Gillum, a former Tucsonan who is now based in Washington, D.C. He said people should realize that once they post something, it cannot be taken back.

“From a reporter’s perspective, people do put a lot out there, whether they realize it or not,” Gillum said.

The Conversations on Privacy series begins at 6:30 p.m. each Wednesday through Nov. 16.
