SMU Sammons Media Ethics Lecture: Jim Moroney
Jim Moroney, recently retired publisher of The Dallas Morning News, will give the 19th annual Rosine Smith Sammons Lecture in Media Ethics, titled "I Am an 'Enemy of the People.'"
The Rosine Smith Sammons Lecture Series in Media Ethics is funded by a generous endowment from the Rosine Foundation Fund of the Communities Foundation of Texas, at the recommendation of Mary Anne Sammons Cree of Dallas. The series is named in honor of her mother, Rosine Smith Sammons, who graduated from SMU in the 1920s with a degree in journalism. The endowment will provide permanent resources for the Meadows School of the Arts to present annual lectures focusing on media ethics. Past speakers have included Pulitzer-winning columnist Charles Krauthammer, national media lawyer and author Bruce Sanford, and Pulitzer-winning cartoonist Michael Ramirez.
