This panel discussion features three Sacramento Bee journalists: Scott Lebar, Managing Editor; Stephen Magagnini, Senior Diversity Writer; and Erika D. Smith, Associate Editor and Editorial Writer. They will discuss the role of local news and public rhetorics in a national context. When questions at the forefront of national politics, such as racism, xenophobia, and sexism, play out in our region, how does the local story, written for a local public, interact with the national conversation? When stories from local newspapers have the potential to go viral on digital media, how do reporters envision their audiences—and what are the effects when those stories do go viral?

This is the fourth of a series of events focused on Public Rhetoric that Rhetoric@Davis has hosted in 2017-2018.
