While serving as Editor-in-Chief of Time Inc. from 1995 to 2005, Norman Pearlstine confronted some of the most vexing issues in journalism today. In this talk, Pearstine describes the court case history that informed his decision to instruct Time Magazine reporter Matt Cooper to cooperate with the grand jury that eventually indicted Scooter Libby, then the top aide to Vice President Dick Cheney. Pearlstine is presented by the Helen Edison Lecture Series, sponsored by UC San Diego's Extended Studies and Public Programs. (#11419)
