TALK | Navigating the Noise: Election Coverage in the Digital Age
Join BHS and the Social Science Research Council for a discussion about fundamental changes to the news industry that are reshaping where and how citizens get information about candidates for public office.
In 2020, voters will make choices about candidates based on information gleaned from a fragmented and polarized news ecosystem that includes a shrinking core of professional journalists competing for attention with a growing periphery of partisan opinionators and hostile foreign interlopers. Panelists include Julia Azari, associate professor of political science at Marquette University, author of Delivering the People’s Message: The Changing Politics of the Presidential Mandate and regular contributor to political science blog The Mischiefs of Faction; Johanna Dunaway, associate professor of communications at Texas A&M University; and Michael Wagner, professor of journalism and mass communications at the University of Wisconsin. Moderated by political analyst and MSNBC’s “AM JOY” Joy Reid.
Presented in partnership with the Social Science Research Council.
