During his 46-year career, Dr. Ed Wasserman has focused on issues of ethics, technology, and the ever-evolving questions of how news and information are distributed and consumed. His PhD thesis at the London School of Economics—written long before smart phones or the Internet—was a study of the politics and economics of technological innovation, focused on the communications satellite systems that were revolutionizing global news coverage.
