LWVMA recently sent word of a free webinar from the Harvard Kennedy School's Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy:
Friday, April 10, 2020. 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Joan Donovan, Research Director of the Shorenstein Center, will host a conversation with Nancy Gibbs, Director of the Shorenstein Center and former Editor in Chief of TIME Magazine, Setti Warren, Executive Director of the Shorenstein Center and former Mayor of Newton MA, and Rob Faris, author of Network Propaganda and Senior Researcher at the Shorenstein Center.
In this webinar they will examine how COVID-19 will impact our elections, campaigns, and journalism. Will COVID-19 contribute to voter suppression? How should campaigns proceed during the disrupted primaries? How should journalists cover elections in 2020 as information on the ground will be difficult to gather? What forms of misinformation might impact voter turnout?
