An Update on the Political Landscape
Speaker: Journalist Steve Roberts
More than two months after the inauguration, journalist Steven Roberts will help us take stock of where the new administration and the new Congress are heading. Steve will discuss the surprises (good and bad) so far and the challenges ahead.
Steve Roberts has been a journalist for more than 50 years, covering some of the major events of his time, from the antiwar movement and student revolts of the 60s and 70s to President Reagan's historic trip to Moscow in 1988 and 13 presidential election campaigns. His 25-year career with The New York Times included assignments as bureau chief in Los Angeles and Athens, and as Congressional and White House correspondent. He was a senior writer at U.S. News for seven years, specializing in national politics and foreign policy. As a broadcaster, Roberts has been the chief political analyst for the ABC radio network. As a teacher, he lectures widely on American politics and the role of the news media. Since 1997, he has been the Shapiro Professor of Media and Public Affairs at the George Washington University. He is the recipient of many honors and is the author of a number of columns and books, including with his beloved wife Cokie Roberts.
