About This Event
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; Michael Wagner, professor of journalism and mass communications at the University of Wisconsin; and Claire Wardle, Founder and Director of First Draft. Moderated by Johanna Dunaway, professor of communication at Texas A&M University.
