Improving Political Discourse in the Media:
Fantasy or Reality?
Join nationally-known political strategist and communications expert Mike McCurry, in a conversation about the causes and solutions to the current dismal state of political discourse in the media.
- Americans are tired of polarized political bickering and journalists who stir the pot with divisive language designed to rake in big ratings numbers.
- We are losing the opportunity to educate ourselves about issues so that we can work together effectively to make informed decisions about our collective future.
- What can we do to alter the tone of media coverage? How do we take responsibility to effect this change?
