AMERICA & ME: COVERING US PRESIDENTS IN A DIGITAL AGE - a talk by NUALA McGOVERN

For the past 10 years, Nuala McGovern has been a presenter on the BBC World Service in London and has reported from across the globe. New York was also her home for many years from the early 1990s, which ignited her love of American politics which continues to this day. From the beginning of Nuala's public radio career to now, she has watched American presidents come and go but with each presidency there has been a shift in global politics and a perception of what it means to be 'the leader of the free world'. The explosion of online information has changed how politics is covered and nowhere more so than in the USA. From the scandal surrounding President Clinton, through the war-time presidencies of Bush & Obama and to the always-controversial Donald Trump, Nuala will share the stories of some of the people she has met along the way trying to understand the power and influence of the American Commander-in-Chief in an internet age.
