7:00 PM in The Egg at the Empire State Plaza. The event is free and open

Focusing on the period from the Vietnam War to the current Iraq
conflict, Utley will discuss the dramatic changes in how the media
covers events and the implications of those changes. He will examine the
differences between being "embedded" in Vietnam and Iraq, the tremendous
volume of information available to us and what it means for history, and
our ability to access news and information.

A familiar face to millions of television viewers, Garrick Utley's
award-winning journalism career spans 40 years as a correspondent for
NBC, ABC, and CNN. Beginning in 1963, he spent 30 years covering
international affairs for NBC - including the Vietnam War - and
reporting from more than 70 countries. He is also the author of "You
Should Have Been Here Yesterday, A Life in Television News," which will
be available for purchase before and after the lecture.
