I have a theory that the closest parallel to the 2008 presidential campaign is … the 2005 Cincinnati mayor’s race. And I’m going to try it out Wednesday at a panel discussion Wednesday on “Media Coverage of The Politics of Race & Gender in the Presidential Election” at the University of Cincinnati.
Should be a lively and interesting panel. Co-panelists:
- Lincoln Ware, host, The Lincoln Ware Show, WDBZ-AM
- Kathy Y. Wilson, senior editor, Cincinnati Magazine & author of Your Negro Tour Guide: Truths in Black and White
- Tom McKee, reporter, WCPO-TV (Channel 9)
- Mike Sheehy, associate journalism professor, University of Cincinnati
Where: University of Cincinnati, Tangeman University Center, Room 4002, 600 Clifton Avenue, Cincinnati, OH
When: Wednesday, February 27, 7 p.m.
The moderator is my colleague Keith T. Reed, a business reporter for the Enquirer and economics blogger at BET.com.
Sponsors: Cincinnati Association of Black Journalists and the University of Cincinnati’s Journalism Program
