The Making and Breaking of Public Heroes

06/16/06 12:00AM

A distinguished panel, including Democratic National Committee chair Howard Dean, Newsweek political correspondent Howard Fineman, Republican Advisor Ron Kaufman, former CBS News political editor Dotty Lynch and political communications director Howard Wolfson, discusses the media's role in making and breaking public heroes. Moderator Norman Ornstein, resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research, questions if the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy was a turning point on how the press looks at figures and asks if our culture wants to have heroes. Panel discussion was recorded live April 25 2006 at the University of Vermont.
