Election Media Manipulation

0nce upon a time Howard Rosenberg simply previewed TV series and specials. Now he is a bona fide authority on TV and politics. For the past year he has been preparing us for the political outcome in November. His excellent articles in the Los Angeles Times have had such headlines as "'Voting in Favor of Change," a tongue-in-cheek analysis of what should happen at future national conventions. Pick up an issue of the L.A. Times' Calendar section-Mr. Rosenberg's insightful and often humorous articles appear three times a week.

On September 15, Mr. Rosenberg addresses an Athenaeum audience on "Election Media Manipulation." His speech will be the first in a series of talks focusing on the upcoming election. Members of the student newspaper staff are welcome to attend a special reception with Howard Rosenberg at 4:00 p.m. (This will be a discussion of life in the newsroom, and no sign-up is required.) At 5:30, the Athenaeum hosts its usual guest reception, followed by dinner at 6:00 p.m. and the address at 7:00. Please sign up for dinner using the enclosed Fortnightly slip.
