Bernard Kalb moderated a panel discussion about the impact of the front pages of the New York Times going back to 1851 and how that impact has changed over time, especially recently. The participants also talk about how front page stories are chosen and changes made by distribution of news on the Internet. The panelists responded to questions from members of the audience. This event was held by the Smithsonian Associates in the S. Dillon Ripley Center at 7:00 p.m.
