Laura Flanders Moderates: Media Malpractice and the Election

How responsible is the media for calling out a candidate's untruths? Has the media employed a double-standard in reporting on Hillary Clinton's candidacy? What role has gender played? How have different media shaped (and misshaped) the campaign? How has the ascent of social media altered the role of the traditional press? What lessons do we need to draw from media coverage of this election? What changes need to be considered? What is the role of media in a democracy?

Join the conversation with a group of deeply engaged political and media analysts one week before the most important election of our lifetimes. Speakers include Joan WalshFarai Chideya, Rinku Sen, and Katha Pollit. Moderated by Laura Flanders with a special introduction by Katrina vanden Heuvel.

Sponsored by The Nation and The New School.
