Journalism and the Post-Presidential Election Political Scene

Dean Geeta Anand joins a panel of fellow journalists, including Berkeley Journalism instructors David Thigpen and David Barstow, and alumna and NPR White House correspondent Tamara Keith for a conversation about journalism in the wake of the presidential election. As priorities at the national political level shift before the new term starts in January 2021, panelists discuss the national agenda and its impact on California.
