  • Starts: 7:00 pm on Thursday, February 22, 2018
  • Ends: 8:30 pm on Thursday, February 22, 2018
“The Truth is More Important Now than Ever” argues the New York Times. “Democracy Dies in Darkness” says the Washington Post. Or… does the Trump adminstration have a point in calling journalists ‘fake’ and ‘biased’? Has the current administration weakened the role of the media or actually strengthened it? Join us for a faculty panel about the current state of affairs in D.C. going into year two of the Trump administration. Georgetown Cupcakes will be served. Panel: Dr. Edward Downes – Associate Professor, Public Relations; Dave Shaw – BUDC Adjunct Professor & Executive Producer, Politico; Dr. Thomas Whalen – Associate Professor, Social Sciences; Moderated By: Walter Montano – Professor, History & Director, BUDC Program
Location:
