US Journalism & Informed Citizens: Political issues and the public with Kathleen Frankovic

Throughout March, featured panelists will discuss world media and news sources, contemporary political issues, and the future of local news. This is the second event of the 3-part series focusing on political issues and the public facilitated by Charles F. Rund and panelist Kathleen Frankovic.

Kathleen Frankovic spent more than three decades at CBS News as the point person for the CBS News Poll and the CBS News polling collaboration with The New York Times. She has served as president of both the World Association for Public Opinion and the American Association for Public Opinion Research, and has won many national awards for her work conducting and explaining public opinion for the news media, including the 2008 AAPOR Award for Exceptionally Distinguished Achievement and the 2011 Roper Center Mitofsky Award for Excellence in Public Opinion Research. She holds a Ph.D. in political science and has consulted for Harvard University, Pew Research Center, CBS News, the Open Society Foundations, and YouGov.

Journalism, Democracy, and the Informed Citizen was made possible in part by a grant from Oregon Humanities, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Oregon Cultural Trust, The Standard, and Stoel Rives LLP.

This program will be offered both in person and virtually. Space is limited and registration is required at least 24 hours in advance. Let us know when you register if you prefer to attend in person or virtually. A zoom link will be sent to your email if you choose virtual attendance. Email or call 541-476-0571 to register.
