On Tuesday, October 30th, the Friends of the Library are excited to welcome Jon Meacham, presidential historian, contributing editor at Time and Pulitzer Prize-winning author, to the College of Charleston. Known as a skilled raconteur and an eloquent speaker with a depth of knowledge about history, politics and religion, Meacham is one of America’s most prominent public intellectuals and understands how issues and events impact our lives.
Meacham’s keynote address entitled “The Media’s Secret Bias: Liberals, Conservatives, and the Truth about the News”, is timely given the upcoming presidential election. Jon Meacham brings renewed perspective to the issue of media bias, grounded in historical analysis and his own life’s work with print and television news media outlets. Meacham cuts to the core of media bias, explaining how politics and human nature shape the news we see and read.
