Journalists To Analyze Upcoming Presidential Debate at Antioch University Santa Barbara

SANTA BARBARA, Calif.) – Antioch University Santa Barbara presents Say What?, a discussion of the presidential debate and this year’s unique election with Lou Cannon and Jerry Roberts. The two veteran journalists will be in dialogue on Tuesday, September 27, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at Antioch’s downtown campus at 602 Anacapa Street. This event is free and open to the public.
On the day following the first presidential debate, Cannon and Roberts will discuss what they felt they learned and didn’t learn about the candidates. They also will look at where the presidential election stands with six weeks to go. Then they’ll survey key House and Senate races, finishing up with a few of the 17 propositions on the California ballot.
Lou Cannon, who is widely regarded as the foremost biographer of President Ronald Reagan, is currently editorial advisor to State Net Capitol Journal. Jerry Roberts, former managing editor of the San Francisco Chronicle and former editor and publisher of the Santa Barbara News-Press, co-founded, a nonpartisan website covering California politics.
“Hosting political analysts of the caliber of Lou Cannon and Jerry Roberts is a great honor for us,” said Barbara Greenleaf, Antioch’s Associate Vice Chancellor of External Affairs. “We learned a great deal from their last presentation, Volatile Politics, in April, and we expect to be similarly enlightened by Say What?”
