The Knight Chair in Media and Religion presents a discussion with David Simon, creator and executive producer of the highly-acclaimed HBO series The Wire. On the critically acclaimed series, Simon has tackled problems of contemporary urban life. This season, the former Baltimore Sun reporter takes a hard look at how the news media has to do “more with less” and the impact of that on the body politic. Reception follows discussion.
