CNN's Anderson Cooper, Local Media Panel in Post-Election Analysis
As part of its 2004-05 Presidential Events Series, Eckerd College will host two events immediately following the November 2nd election featuring a local media panel on November 4 and CNN host Anderson Cooper on November 8 in a 'post-game analysis' format.
On Thursday, November 4, St. Petersburg Times columnist Lucy Morgan; 970WFLA Newsradio host Jack Harris; Tampa Tribune reporter William March; and Mabili Ajani, host of WMNF 88.5 FM's Critical Times will serve on a media panel entitled Election 2004 Outcome: What It Means to Floridians. Robert C. Wigton, professor of political science at Eckerd College, will serve as moderator.
The focus of the November 4 media panel will be issues that affect Floridians on a statewide basis (including, but not limited to): what does the outcome mean for Social Security and Medicare since Kerry and Bush differ sharply on their approaches to the programs; the effect of "new' campaign style, with independent groups funneling millions into Florida as a battleground state; any effect of the outcome on the 2006 governor's race; the effectiveness of early voting, etc.
