EVENT DETAILS

In recent years, American foreign policy has had to contend with a revived nuclear and missile buildup in North Korea and Iran, war and a refugee crisis in Syria, cyber-attacks from Russia and other adversaries, a Middle East defined by instability, a trade war and growing competition for power and influence across the board with China, populism and a refugee crisis in South America, and the creeping effects of climate change. How will these and other challenges affect the 2020 election—and what is the victor in that election likely to inherit?

The Presidents vs. the Press: From the Founding Fathers to Fake News

Harold Holzer
Douglas Brinkley (moderator)

Thu, May 21st, 2020 | 6:30 pm

A free and independent press is critical to a healthy democracy—but that does not mean American presidents have always had an amicable relationship with the Fourth Estate. From George Washington to Donald J. Trump, presidents have quarreled with, attacked, manipulated, denigrated—and sometimes even jailed members of—the media. Scholar Harold Holzer, in conversation with presidential historian Douglas Brinkley, traces the clashes between chief executives and journalists throughout history.

Elected to Congress in 1978, Newt Gingrich quickly became one of the most transformative figures in modern American politics. By employing calculated campaigns against political opponents and casting himself as a savior in a battle between good and evil, Gingrich led the Republican Party to reclaim the House majority for the first time in decades. Historian Julian Zelizer explores how Gingrich forged a legacy that reverberates to the present day, from the Contract with America to the rise of the Tea Party to the election of Donald J. Trump.
