Trump vs. the Media

So, I’m super-excited to have my favorite media analyst as our NCSU guest speaker tomorrow (Wednesday) night.  I’ve been reading Jay Rosen for years, and his views have shaped how I understand the media as much as anybody’s.  His occasional blog is terrific and his frequent tweets are among my favorites.

Here’s the official description.  If you are local, try and make it!  I’m going to try and record it for viewing on-line, but I’ve got to figure out some stuff about that.  I’ll let you know.
