Jurnos Discuss Obama-McCain Campaign 6:30 p.m. Tuesday

September 11, 2008

Veteran political journalists with experience in covering US presidential campaigns in print, television, and radio will discuss presidential election coverage at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 16.

Jon Margolis, former chief correspondent for the Chicago Tribune;
John Mashek, US News & World Report and former political correspondent for the Boston Globe; Christine Dolan, London Mirror and former CNN political director; Jules Witcover, syndicated political columnist;
Hal Bruno, former ABC News political director; Jack Nelson, former Los Angeles Times Washington bureau chief; and Lynn Sweet, Chicago Sun-Times will discuss what is not known so far about the candidates, what should be expected to be known about the candidates before Election Day, and what will be covered in the debates.

As part of the national political press corps, they broke stories, reported on them, and made decisions to cover and not cover certain spoon-fed stories. They have seen history in the making first-hand, and all of them have covered the national presidential debates and some served as moderators of the debates.

Cash bar at 6:30 p.m.; 7:15 p.m. panel discussion followed by questions.

Sponsored by the Professional Development Committee. Open to Club members and the public. Please RSVP at (202) 662-7501
