Signature Debate Speaker: What Issues Will Decide the 2016 Presidential Election? A Discussion With Eugene Robinson and Stephen Hayes

This Signature Debate Speaker event features two presenters on September 22: Eugene Robinson, The Washington Post and MSNBC Contributor and Stephen F. Hayes, The Weekly Standard and FOX News Contributor.
Eugene Robinson uses his twice-weekly column in The Washington Post to pick American society apart and then put it back together again in unexpected and revelatory new ways. His remarkable story-telling ability has won him wide acclaim, most notably as the winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for his commentary on the 2008 presidential race that resulted in the election of America’s first African-American president.  In his three decades at The Washington Post, Robinson has been city hall reporter, city editor, foreign correspondent in Buenos Aires and London, foreign editor and assistant managing editor in charge of the paper’s award-winning Style section.


Stephen F. Hayes is a senior writer at The Weekly Standard and a FOX News contributor, where he is a regular member of the “FOX News All-Stars" on the network's signature news broadcast, Special Report with Bret Baier. Hayes is the author of two New York Times best sellers: The Connection: How al Qaeda’s Collaboration with Saddam Hussein Has Endangered America and Cheney: The Untold Story of America’s Most Powerful and Controversial Vice President. Hayes has written extensively about national politics, international affairs and the country’s current political leadership. He was the first to report that Mitt Romney was preparing to select Paul Ryan as his running-mate and broke a series of stories related to the attacks on US facilities in Benghazi, Libya.

Moderated by:
Kara Alaimo, Ph.D., Assistant Professor and Associate Chair, Department of Journalism, Media Studies, and Public Relations, Lawrence Herbert School of Communication
