Onward Christian Media - According to a recent wave of news stories, the
conservative Christian right wields an increasingly powerful media force and is
becoming more creative at getting their message out – on television and radio,
and in movies, books and magazines. While some don’t see a cause for
alarm, others believe this kind of proselytizing dangerously blurs the lines
between politics and religion. Join the conversation. Presenters
are Chris Hedges, author,
Losing Moses on the Freeway: The 10 Commandments in America; War is a Force
that Gives Us Meaning, former correspondent, The New York Times and Jonathan
Alter, Senior Editor and Columnist, Newsweek. This event will be co-presented with
"Freedom! Not Just Another Word." With syndicated columnist Molly Ivins, Brandeis professor / Yale Law graduate Anita Hill and News Hour with Jim Lehrer senior correspondent Ray Suarez. We are making a special offer to students. If they bring their student ID, they can purchase tickets at 50% off the stated price.
