The panel for the event includes:
+ Moderator Rosemary Armao, a journalism professor at UAlbany and journalist
+ Attorney/political advisor Bruce Gyory, who served in the administration of Democratic governors in New York
+ UAlbany political scientist Bruce Miroff, who specializes in American politics and the presidency
+ Political media strategist Jessica Proud, she was the media coordinator for the New York delegation to the Republican National Convention
+ Boston College political scientist Emily Thorson, who studies "how political information and misinformation reache citizens (through traditional and new forms of media as well as through informal interactions) and the conditions under which this information affects their attitudes and behavior"
Given all the recent focus on Donald Trump Twitter fights with media outlets, questions about which stories got attention during the campaign, fake news sites, and the role of Facebook, they might have one or two things to talk about it.
The discussion is in the Performing Arts Center Recital Hall on the uptown campus starting at 6:15 pm. It's free and open to the public -- though registration is encouraged (see the first link above).
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
