The Making and Breaking of Public Heroes

Print More

A distinguished panel, including Democratic National Committee chair
Howard Dean, Newsweek political correspondent Howard Fineman,
Republican Advisor Ron Kaufman, former CBS News political editor Dotty
Lynch and political communications director Howard Wolfson, discusses
the media’s role in making and breaking public heroes. Moderator Norman
Ornstein, resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute for
Public Policy Research, questions if the assassinations of John F.
Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy was a turning point on
how the press looks at figures and asks if our culture wants to have
heroes. Panel discussion was recorded live April 25 2006 at the
University of Vermont.
