Professor Kumar moderated a panel of White House correspondents and White House press secretaries discussing the dependent relationship between the press corps and presidents. They discussed how the relationship had changed over time as the news cycle changed, the audience fragmented, and the relationship became less cooperative and more adversarial. Also discussed was the importance of pictures and of television, both as a pictorial medium and as a method of bypassing the press to appeal directly to the public. Among other issues discussed were differences between Democrats and Republicans as well as between different administrations. The panelists also responded to questions from members of the audience. close
