Election 2019 Breakfast Series | Media Coverage & the Campaign Online

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 07:30to09:00
Rideau Club, 99 Bank Street,15th floor, Ottawa

Federal election campaigns hit us with a tornado of headlines, political ads, social media posts, and polls. The Max Bell School of Public Policy, in partnership with Policy Options, invites you to take a breather from the noise and join us for a series of substantive conversations about how the 2019 campaign is unfolding.

Traditional news media outlets might no longer monopolize election campaign coverage, but they are still key players in framing the race and its policy debates. This panel will analyze the media coverage so far, midway through the campaign. How have social media and other digital tools been used to influence voters? Have there been attempts at disinformation? We will also evaluate the first of two debates organized by the new federal leaders’ debates commission.
