07/11 - Beyond The Spill: A GulfWatch Special

What are the challenges facing the GulfWatch member regions a year after the capping of the BP oil leak?

LPB has partnered with nine other public broadcasting stations to form GulfWatch – a consortium of Gulf Coast television and radio stations whose mission is to provide continuing coverage of issues affecting the region. From the ongoing recovery from the BP oil spill, to the extreme weather and flooding this spring, GulfWatch members have been sharing stories online for the past 12 months. In July, GulfWatch reporters from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida will explore the challenges facing their regions a year after the capping of the BP oil leak. Join these journalists, citizens and a panel of experts as they share updates on the environmental, economic and health issues along the coast. Airs Wednesday, July 27 at 7PM on LPB.

There is no survey for this month’s topic.

Funded by a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Current Topic


     12/18 - News About the News (Encore)

How can viewers distinguish between fact and fake news and is social media blurring the difference?
According to the 2018 Louisiana Survey, when it comes to trusting news organizations, more Louisiana residents put their faith in local media than national media outlets. Despite that trust, only 36 percent of the state’s news consumers say local news deals fairly with both sides.

So, why is there so much mistrust of the news media? Where are consumers primarily getting their news? How can viewers distinguish between fact and fake news and is social media blurring the difference? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on a special encore presentation of “News about the News” airing Wednesday, December 26 at 7pm on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE.
