Traditional news media outlets might no longer monopolize election campaign coverage, but they are still key players in framing the race and its policy debates. This panel analyzed the media coverage so far, midway through the campaign. How have social media and other digital tools been used to influence voters? Have there been attempts at disinformation? We also evaluated the first of two debates organized by the new federal leaders’ debates commission. This event is part of a series of substantive conversations about how the 2019 campaign is unfolding, hosted by Policy Options, in partnership with the Max Bell School of Public Policy.
