Ask a Political Scientist: The Media!
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
How does the news we consume affect our political beliefs? Or do we just consume news we agree with? Is there anything we can do to help ensure accurate information that doesn't drive us apart? This week on Ask a Political Scientist we welcome Shanto Iyengar, Ph.D. (Stanford), renowned expert on the media, public opinion, and political psychology, and Walt Hickey, senior editor for data at Insider and creator of Numlock News, to discuss the role of the media in democracy and how we can make it a force for good. Join us on Thursday, Oct. 1, 7p ET on our YouTube channel. You can make a reservation here to let us know you're coming, or just show up! The show is free! Optional donations this week go to a good cause to be announced soon! Ask a Political Scientist is a free live-streaming show that brings the latest research and biggest ideas in political science straight to wherever you're riding out this horrible year. We're doing a limited run of our popular show especially tailored to making sense of -- and hopefully making a difference in -- the upcoming election (have you heard? there's an election coming up!).
