The state of local journalism and the role of the media on the national stage are the focus of the next Beer & Politics forum, Thursday night at Liberation Brewing in Bixby Knolls. The monthly event, featuring discussion and debate of timely civic issues, returned to Long Beach in August 2018 after initially launching in 2006.
The event will feature journalists and leaders from the Long Beach Post, the Press-Telegram and the Long Beach Business Journal.
In a Facebook post about the event, Beer & Politics host and founder Michael Clements plans to “discuss what the future of the press is, given the realities facing news publications and an increasingly digital world.”
Beer & Politics begins at 7 p.m. on Oct. 11 at Liberation Brewing Company, 3630 Atlantic Ave., in Bixby Knolls.
Free news isn’t cheap.
We believe that everyone should have access to important local news, for free.
However, it costs money to keep a local news organization like this one—independently owned and operated here in Long Beach, without the backing of any national corporation—alive.
If independent local news is important to you, please consider supporting us with a monthly or one-time contribution. Read more.
