James Poniewozik - Audience of One: Donald Trump, Television, and the Fracturing of America— in conversation with Alyssa Rosenberg

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Writing in the tradition of Marshall McLuhan and Neil Postman, Poniewozik, chief television critic for The New York Times, dissects Trump as a cultural phenomenon by narrating his rise through his relationship with the media. For both entities, the last few decades have been a time of extraordinary transformation: the three mainstream TV networks have been joined by cable, the internet, and social media, while Trump has reinvented himself from cartoonish millionaire to reality-show star to Twitter-obsessed chief executive. With incisive analysis of both politics and culture, Poniewozik demonstrates how the media explosion has provided the perfect environment for Trump and how he has taken advantage of it.

Poniewozik will be in conversation with Alyssa Rosenberg, an opinion writing covering culture for The Washington Post.
