Panels on Public Diplomacy
Tuesday, October 2nd 2012
Wednesday, the nation will watch President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney debate in a milestone of the presidential election campaign. The world will be watching too, and millions will get news from the Voice of America and other government-funded outlets like Al Hurra.
Click below for a report on the panel co-sponsored with the University of Southern California's Center on Public Diplomacy yesterday. Council Member Alan Heil has captured the discussion about how USG-funded foreign broadcasters are presenting the Presidential elections in Iran and the Middle East, and what they're hearing from their foreign audiences.
This was the first of a series of Washington roundtables on international broadcasting held at the American Foreign Service Association and co-sponsored by the Public Diplomacy Council and the Washington program of the USC Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism. Assisting in organizing the initial session was the U.S. Broadcasting Board of Governors. On Election Eve, November 5, the next panel will have as a principal speaker the director of the BBC World Service election on coverage in the United States.
