America Divided – What is the Media’s Role?


As President Trump and his administration get settled into office and begin implementing their agenda for the first 100 days, the country remains divided on issues such as immigration, abortion rights and “alternative facts.” Join the Atlanta Press Club for a discussion on Monday, February 20 that will focus on the unique challenges the press faces in a new political environment.

This event will be the first in a series as the Atlanta Press Club looks at issues impacting the country throughout 2017.
