Thursday, April 6, 2017
7 pm
Chappaqua Library Theater "Media and Politics: The Impact on Our Democracy" Forum. The days of newsman, Walter Cronkite "the most trusted man in America" have passed. Today, 24/7 cable channels, broadcast media and social media have changed the way we receive the news. With the many cable news networks, Twitter and Facebook it is often hard to sort out fact from fiction and news from entertainment. Some people are bombarded with information and then there are others who avoid social media and cable news. All these factors have had a great impact on the electoral process in the United States.

The League of Women Voters of New Castle Forum on media and politics will address these issues and the impact they had on the 2016 Presidential election and will have on elections moving forward, both local and national.

Moderated by: Jeanne Zaino, Ph.D., Political Analyst and Professor at Iona College

Panelists: Jon Klein, Cable News and Internet Executive; Jerry McKinstry, Media Strategist and Journalist; Phil Reisman, Columnist/Radio Talk Show Host

Please join us to pay tribute to Polly, who has humbly set an example for many women in our community. Kuhn, a longtime League member, lives in Somers now and continues to be active in her local League.
