The Trump Administration’s contentious relationship with the press — characterized by claims of “fake news” and “alternative facts” — raises serious concerns about the role of the media in a free and democratic society. To help us understand this “post-truth” era, a panel of experts will examine the interplay of media and politics in contemporary America on the basis of their experience both here and in the regimes of Vladimir Putin in Russia and Silvio Berlusconi in Italy. Participants include Masha Gessen, author of The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin; Alexander Stille, author of The Sack of Rome: How a Beautiful European Country with a Fabled History and a Storied Culture Was Taken Over by a Man Named Silvio Berlusconi; and Jim Rutenberg, media columnist for the New York Times. Moderated by John Torpey, director of the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies.
