Mar 12, 2017 | 11:00am – 12:00pm

Speakers

Arrow Media

The 2016 presidential election disrupted cultural and political norms. What does this disruption mean for vibrant and civil discourse? How can citizens get past the noise and politics of personality to engage in meaningful debate? How should the media cover important debates about policy and inform the public when "facts" and "truth" are subjective ideas? The panelists will discuss what's at stake for voters and the media in this disruptive moment, and what can (and must) change in order to invite broader participation.
