From memories of TMZ cameras to touching tributes for thoughtful journalists to the infamous “800-pound man in fuzzy slippers” comment, we’ve had some memorable moments at our past Report Card events.

What will make news this year?

Come to this year’s Report Card on the Media on March 24 to find out. Our panelists were the subjects of big news stories this year, and this event is their chance to talk about what that was like.

Panelists include:

Hanif Mohebi, director of the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Debbie Ziegler, the mother of Brittany Maynard, a young woman with a brain tumor who became a right-to-die advocate before moving to Oregon to take her own life.

Brandon Duncan, also known as Tiny Doo, a rapper who was charged with being part of a criminal conspiracy because of his album No Safety. It was the first time in the state this controversial charge was used at any significant level, and the charges were eventually dropped.

Dave Roberts, the San Diego County supervisor whose relations with staff led to lawsuits, resignations and intense media coverage.

Please join us as they grade the media (including you!).
