Coverage of Government and Elections in the Age of Digital Media
Join the Public Policy Forum, and its partners from Marquette University's Diederich College of Communication and the Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service, at a Viewpoint Luncheon that will explore the changing face of public policy reporting.
Later this year, voters in Wisconsin will cast ballots in gubernatorial and state legislative elections, while voters across the country will make choices in fierce congressional battles.
How will hundreds of online media outlets change the way these elections are covered by traditional news media? How has the changing nature of journalism transformed coverage of government in general? What is the nexus between good journalism and good government, and can that nexus be preserved in the digital age?
