Sonoma Speaker Series: In Conversation with Brooke Gladstone & Dan Schnur

The Trump administration will test the strength of the First Amendment, which says in part: “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press…”

President Trump calls the media “lying, dishonest, corrupt, disgusting, scum,” among other things, and has threatened to tighten libel laws in order to censure them. In the face of crushing attacks laced with falsehoods, the media is debating when it can call a lie a lie.

Join us for a lively discussion of how the media should cover the Trump administration, with Brooke Gladstone, host of NPR’s On the Media, and Dan Schnur, Director of the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at the University of Southern California / analyst and political commentator for CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, and National Public Radio.
