Description

Jennifer L.  Pozner presents  “When Anchormen Attack: Gender, Race and Media in the 2008 Elections”
 
For the first time in history, a white woman and black man vied for the Democratic presidential nomination. In this multi-media lecture, journalist, author and media critic Jennifer L. Pozner, founder of Women in Media & News, exposes how sexist backlash and racial prejudice have dominated and distorted media coverage of one of the most important moments in U.S. history. In her lecture, Jennifer uses wit, insight and damning footage to expose and challenge the media’s irresponsible preference for regressive stereotypes over substantive reporting.
