Update-1 takes early look at 2020 presidential race

June 6, 2019 | By Adam Konowe |

In the latest edition of the National Press Club podcast Update-1, 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 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.

Club Broadcast/Podcast Team co-vice chair Mike Hempen produces Update-1. The podcast can be heard on the Club website or on iTunes, Stitcher and TuneIn.
