Political Talk & Political Drama Part 1: Election 2016

So, back on September 9th, I held my first major event for the New York Society for General Semantics. September 9th was the 70th anniversary of the NYSGS, and the program I set up was a panel discussion entitled, "Political Talk and Political Drama: Election 2016," held at The Players, the historic club over in Gramercy Park in Manhattan. The participants on the program were...

Terence P. Moran, Professor of Media Ecology, New York University

Marvin Kitman, author, humorist, and critic

Susan J. Drucker, Professor of Journalism, Media Studies and Public Relations, Hofstra University

Paul Levinson, Professor of Communication and Media Studies, Fordham University

and moderated by yours truly, NYSGS President and Professor of Communication and Media Studies, Fordham University, Lance Strate

And in my perfectly unbiased opinion, it was great. An exciting, insightful, and at times dramatic discussion. But don't take my word for it, you be the judge, as we caught it all on video and uploaded it to YouTube, and you can watch it there, or right here:

I set up a second panel on the same topic more recently, more on that in my next post.

And please feel free to check out all of the resources available on the New York Society for General Semantics site. And you can subscribe for updates, you don't have to be a New Yorker, or anywhere nearby.
