    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    To cover the White House is to work in a near constant state of flux. In the age of fake news, misinformation, and perpetual spin, bringing the news from the People’s House has become a challenge like never before. In this Conversation, we’ll hear from veteran experts in the field who will share the inside scoop and tease apart the balancing act of reporting from the White House.
