headshot of Will FowlerDuring last summer’s Black Lives Matter protests in Washington, D.C., journalist and Ames native Will Fowler headed to the streets. At first intending to observe the demonstrations as a reporter, he quickly became involved with the movement directly. Can a reporter become so entangled in a story that remaining objective becomes impossible? Join this First Amendment Days Depth & Dialogue session to discuss the limits of journalistic objectivity when you become a part of the story. Fowler lives in D.C. and is a science writer for WE&T, and freelance journalist and editor.  

Moderated by Brenda and Mark Witherspoon
