    In New York Times v. United States (the “Pentagon Papers” case), Justice Hugo Black reminded us that it is the press’s constitutionally assigned job “to serve the governed, not the governors.” Yet in order to fill that role, the news media must interact with “the governors.” This panel will examine the state of the press’s complicated and important relationships with the powers that be—from the three branches of government to private internet platforms. How are these relationships faring? How are they changing? What new challenges face America’s watchdog as it works to serve the governed?
