Challenges amid the Chaos: Covering Scott Walker – the Reporters
SPJ Forum Audience
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker makes news in his home state and in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and elsewhere in the U.S. and across the globe. Three of Wisconsin’s award-winning political journalists and a nationally known media and political science scholar discussed the challenges and chaos of covering Walker on Monday, June 1, 2015.
An audience of about 100 turned out to hear Jessica Arp of WISC-TV, Matthew DeFour of the Wisconsin State Journal, Patrick Marley of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and Michael Wagner, UW-Madison professor of journalism and political science and co-author of “Political Behavior of the American Electorate.”
Coverage was provided by Bill Lueders, writing for Progressive magazine and WisconsinEye.
