One week before a new president is elected, join us for a two-evening event of political punditry, with each night offering a different perspective on the important issues of the day, along with the media’s responsibility in covering and influencing the political landscape in the US and abroad.
Gain a deeper understanding of today’s political issues and hear the best competing arguments, while audience members pose questions directly to the speakers in the manner of a town hall meeting.
While it is natural to want to hear the speakers with whom you agree, we strongly encourage you to attend both nights. One of the best ways to explore an issue is to hear contending opinions: it could strengthen your beliefs, or it just might change your mind.
Maureen Dowd is a columnist for the New York Times, a best-selling author and the recipient of multiple journalism awards, including the Pulitzer Prize. While generally considered to be liberal, she has been an active critic on both sides of party lines.
Carl Hulse, the chief Washington correspondent for the New York Times, is also managing editor of First Draft, a political news stream and morning email.
