I’m attending “the first in a series of Community Conversations presented by Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and The Arizona Republic, designed to bring depth and context to topics of interest to Arizonans” this morning. I’m getting a free ticket, since I’m an AZ Voices blogger. Thanks!
Judging from what’s on the roster (from the itinerary email):
Welcome and introductions, Cronkite First Amendment Forum, Bob Robb, Arizona Republic columnist
Cronkite Dean Christopher Callahan interviews Leonard Downie Jr.,former editor of The Washington Post, on the evolution of political coverage, followed by Q&A, Cronkite First Amendment Forum
Arizona Republic Columnist Robert Robb conducts an interview with former U.S. Senator and Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl on political coverage, followed by Q & A, Cronkite Theater
Susan Page, Washington Bureau Chief of USA Today, gives keynote on current national political coverage, followed by Q & A, Cronkite Theater
“Tales from the Trail” panel with Republic Columnists E.J. Montini and Laurie Roberts and Political Cartoonist Steve Benson, followed by Q & A, Cronkite Theater
I’m expecting the discussion will revolve around the “extremism on both sides”. Both sides! You don’t really think Jon Kyl is going to admit his party is causing all the problems, do you?
