Lecture: Jonathan Alter: "Making Sense of 2006/2008 National Elections"

Newsweek senior editor and columnist Jonathan Alter will speak on his coverage of recent and pending elections. Since 1991, Alter has written a widely acclaimed Newsweek column that examines politics, media and social and global issues. Alter is an originator and author of the weekly ?Conventional Wisdom Watch,? which uses up, down and sideways arrows to measure and lampoon the news. As an editor, he helps shape the magazine?s overall news coverage. Alter has covered the last six presidential campaigns for Newsweek. He frequently interviews American presidents and other world leaders and has authored more than 50 Newsweek cover stories. Over the years, he has written extensively about party politics, patriotism, anti-Semitism, weapons of mass destruction and at-risk children. His book, ?The Defining Moment: FDR?s Hundred Days and the Triumph of Hope,? was published in May 2006. Sponsored by the political science department and William Jovanovich Endowment fund.
