The James P. Jimirro Media Impact Series: The Midterm Elections 2018: Media and Politics in a Polarized Country

Sep 25, 2018
6:30 PM ET
New York

Program: 6:30 pm
Reception: 8:00 pm

The upcoming midterm elections promise to be unlike any Congressional contests in American history. The country remains deadlocked in ideological differences, with a majority of Americans thinking that the democracy is falling short of its ideals, as noted in a recent Pew Center study. One of the major questions is whether the public will vote for a fundamental, transformation of U.S. politics, which a majority now desires according to Pew.

The Paley Center gathers top experts from media and both sides of the political aisle to discuss the many forces that will be impacting the pivotal midterm elections on November 6, including generational and gender divisions. Our panelists will particularly assess how the political parties use various forms of media to connect with a diversity of voters and assess what this election foretells for the country’s future. They will also consider how the media represents the candidates of both parties and the public’s desire for change.
