Providence Campus
Tweets and leaks. “Fake news” and “alternative facts.” The President of the United States and the “Enemy of the American People.” On a daily basis, the press and the president are locked in a bitter, high-stakes battle. A panel of experts from Roger Williams University, the press and the Republican Party will delve into what it all means for reporters and politicians, the public and our democracy. They’ll go in-depth on issues touched upon in the #RWU1stAmendment blog, addressing past precedents and future implications, legal issues and journalistic practices, old-school campaigning and the new media landscape. Join us for a timely discussion that is free and open to the public.
