Covering the Campaigns: The Media’s Role in a Chaotic World

October 6, 2019, 8:30 AM

Free

How can we make sense of the byzantine world of politics framing the 2020 presidential and congressional elections? Join former Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank, who served 16 terms in the United States House of Representatives as one of the most outspoken and thoughtful Members of Congress, and Hannah Dineen ’17, weekend anchor and political reporter for NewsCenter Maine, as they discuss the responsibility of journalists to guide us through our electoral maze. Sandy Maisel, who has observed Maine and national politics for almost half a century, will moderate the discussion.
