Media Literacy, Youth Engagement and the Midterm Elections

Event Details:
Friday, November 9th, 8:30 AM
Reuters
1 Times Square
New York, NY

Event Description:
The majority of the U.S. midterm elections will be held on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. All 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 34 of 100 seats in the Senate will be up for election. These elections will have serious implications for the U.S. moving forward. Just two days later, on November 9, 2018, we will be bringing together journalists, educators and students to discuss the results of the election and to ask important questions. What have we learned since the 2016 presidential election about how elections are covered by the news media? Did the fake news phenomena have an effect on the midterms? Were voters more savvy and more media literate? Did social media continue to play a significant role? We will hear from journalists who covered the elections and students who voted for the first time.
