  • Most influential forms of media in recent presidential elections
  • The media’s understanding of its role in public perception
  • The media’s goals in presidential election coverage
  • Themes/narratives/biases
  • Professional and fair media coverage
  • Media credibility in the 21st Century

Students will be allowed to ask questions immediately following the interview. They will also receive chapel credit.

All participants must register prior to the event and registration is limited to the first 500 registrants. CSU students will receive an invite to their BucMail with the link.

Students who are unable to register may receive chapel credit by viewing the event on Blackboard. The interview will be recorded and made public on CSU social media.
