OTTAWA – Members of the media are invited to the second event in a series of Policy Options breakfasts for a discussion on media coverage and the 2019 federal election campaign online.
Traditional news media outlets no longer monopolize election campaign coverage, but they are still key players in framing the race and its policy debates. This panel will analyze the media coverage at the midway point in the campaign. How have social media and other digital tools been used to influence voters? Have there been attempts at disinformation? We will also evaluate the first of two debates organized by the new federal leaders’ debates commission.
