Super Session: Midterm Elections in the Era of Trump

With all the talk of a coming “blue wave,” or, in the mind of President Trump, a possible “red wave” in the 2018 midterm elections, what are journalists to make of it all? In this session, you can benefit from the wisdom of some of the nation’s most notable political analysts. Will the House and/or Senate flip? Will the president’s efforts to help elect candidates ideologically aligned with him work? Is the nation once again about to have divided government, and what will that mean for the next two years? Attend this session to get some of the best insight possible on those questions and more. CBS News national correspondent Chip Reid will moderate.

Super Session: The #MeToo Movement

With yet another media mogul — Les Moonves of CBS — dismissed after allegations of sexual misconduct, join for a timely conversation about the #MeToo movement. It’s one of the most consequential ongoing stories of our time. It started in the movie business, with the Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey scandals, but quickly expanded into our sphere. The sexual assault and harassment allegations against CBS News anchor Charlie Rose, “Today Show” co-host Matt Lauer and others like Moonves have redefined how journalists cover this critical topic. But it also prompts the question: Has anything really changed? National Geographic's Debra Adams Simmons will moderate.

Super Session: On The Road with Steve Hartman: Lessons in Unique Storytelling

Join us for an interactive session with CBS News “On The Road” Correspondent Steve Hartman. Steve is one of Americas best story tellers. He’s well respected in all corners of journalism. Hear Steve describe how he finds, writes and edits his stories, as he breaks down some of your favorites. He’ll have lessons we can all learn no matter what your market size or your role in the newsroom.
