Donahue and Pozner discuss controlling the message, Nov. 6
Posted October 31, 2003; 10:10 a.m.
talk show host Phil Donahue and Russian journalist Vladimir Pozner will lead a discussion on "Controlling the Message: How the Media Framed the War" at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 6, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall.
Starting in the mid-1980s, Donahue and Pozner worked together on a number of joint programs via satellite, linking average citizens in Russia and the United States as the Cold War ended. From 1991 to 1994, they co-hosted an issues-oriented show for CNBC.
Donahue and Pozner will reunite to discuss the current climate of media coverage of the Iraq war. They will examine who controls the media in the United States and internationally, particularly regarding how issues of war and peace are presented. They also will address how average citizens can get involved in influencing that control.
The event will be moderated by Jeffery Laurenti, a senior adviser to the United Nations Foundation and former executive director for policy studies of the United Nations Association of the USA. It is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and the Citizen Diplomacy Committee of the Princeton-based Coalition for Peace Action.
