politicspanel-6--2-Politics and the Media: The 2020 Challenge

  • How much will “Fake News” impact the results of America’s 2020 elections?
  • How important to the nation will California’s Primary be on Super Tuesday – March 3rd?
  • Will our professional media have an impact on the outcomes of our 2020 elections?
  • What can we make of the Democratic primary races so far?

Our panelists are leading Bay Area observers of our country’s politics, the impact of change in the media industry, and the spread of disinformation through the internet and social media.
