Interviewing a Washington Insider on Elections and the Media: How the Digital Revolution Has Changed U.S. Electoral Politics

From the 140 characters of Twitter to the 10 seconds of Snapchat, digital and social media are transforming the role of media in U.S. politics. As the Presidential candidates, TV and cable news, and print media race to keep pace with instantaneous reporting, citizen journalists and social media, how is political coverage evolving, and how is this changing politics? What will be the impact when 100 million Snapchat users become politically active?

Join former Globe and Mail editor John Stackhouse in discussion with Marcus Brauchli, former editor of the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal in what will no doubt be a compelling and insightful discussion just six weeks away from the U.S. elections.

This event is free and open to all. Registration is required. For further information, please contact CSUS Stella Kyriakakis at (416) 946-8972.
