An Early Look At The 2020 Presidential Race

On this edition of Update One, veteran political journalist Larry Barrett, who covered campaigns, elections, and the White House, notably for Time Magazine and the New York Herald Tribune, looks at the early stages of the 2020 campaign, and the lessons learned--or the lessons that should have been learned--by the media. Interviewed by longtime Press Club member Irv Chapman, Barrett compares the Trump style and his policies with those of the dominant Republican personage of recent years, Ronald Reagan, and he talks about the experience of covering a campaign from the early stages to the White House.
