2019 Conversationalists

ABOUT CONVERSATIONS ON THE GREEN

The series is tied to current events. But it transcends conventional boundaries to examine historical, political, social and ethical perspectives and, cross pollinate diverse but interrelated ideas. Most years, it also includes a “Special Event,” a family-friendly community celebration designed to dazzle and amaze, divert and entertain. Past participants have been a distinguished group of writers, historians, scientists, analysts, theologians, et al. Representing a broad spectrum of views and opinions, they have included, among others: Linda Greenhouse, the noted Supreme Court observer from the New York Times; Jeffrey Toobin, the legal affairs writer for The New Yorker;  Chris Hayes of MSNBC, David Stockman, the Reagan Administration’s budget director, Ambassador William vanden Heuvel, a former assistant to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, who shared the stage with his daughter, Katrina, the editor of The Nation; Nicolle Wallace, former chief of communications for President George W. Bush; E.J. Dionne, the Washington Post columnist; Jonathan Alter, the historian and political analyst; and Oz Pearlman, the astounding magician of the mind.

October 27, 2019 "Working Without a Net: On Air in the Age of Trump"
 

This Conversation will approach how Main Stream Media has galvanized a range of norm shattering strategies as the spearhead of civil society. Once defined by its fierce independence, the press has banded together in collective solidarity, publishing mass editorials. Breaking with tradition, it has done away with diplomatic double speak in calling out mendacity and tries to confront falsehoods with an army of fact-checkers charged with defending delegitimized facts.
