Enemy of the People? The Fourth Estate? Many of our participants have questioned the influence of media sources on political perspectives. Therefore, next meeting, we’ll focus on the effect of the press.
Please consider these lead questions as they will frame our discussion: “Is the press the ‘enemy of the American people’? What effect does the press have on our political system and the beliefs of our citizens?” “How do we distinguish ‘bias’ from ‘inaccuracy?”
As usual, we will meet as a whole group for an overview and then break into smaller discussion groups. Then, we will reassemble and share our “common” beliefs and ideas.
We’ll begin at 6:30 PM with dinner and fellowship (potluck if you can; please make/buy a favorite dish to share). The discussion meeting will begin at 7 PM. We plan to end around 8:30.
