What is the role of traditional media in our 21st-century representative democracy? How are we receiving our political information and from which sources? If our information already has a partisan bend, how can we determine whether the information we received is news or rather an editorial? How do politicians in the current news environment spread their message? Join us for a panel discussion moderated by POLITICO reporter Daniel Lippman, including former Members of Congress  Elizabeth Esty (D-CT) and Charlie Dent (R-PA); along with Denise Lenoir Tolliver, communications director for Representative Brenda Lawrence; and Tom Glaisyer, managing director, Public Square/Democracy Fund.

Presented in partnership with the U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress and the Democracy Fund.
