How editorials influences our opinions

Jan. 27, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- How much were you influenced by today's newspaper editorial?

A Western Michigan University professor will lead a discussion that explores the art and science of news making, and look at how editorial choices influence opinions at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28, at the Portage library.

The event is part of the discussion series, "Learning OutLoud: A Guided Exploration of Contemporary Issues," which provides a chance for the public to interact in a question-and-answer format with local experts on controversial issues.

The Jan. 28 talk, "Managing Our Moods: The Role of Media in Our Lives," will feature Dr. Richard Junger, WMU associate professor of English. The free session will be held in the Portage Senior Center at the Portage District Library, 300 Library Lane, Portage, Mich.
