Inspiring and Exhausting: Reporting on Political Campaigns

What is it like for a journalist to cover the final days of a political campaign, right before an election? Bizcast visits with two MBA students who have had this experience first-hand.

Alexis Levinson '21, a former reporter for Buzzfeed, and Knight-Bagehot Fellow Hannah Levintova '21, who writes for Mother Jones, give us their perspective on the differences between covering local and national politics; trustworthy ways to stay informed; and whether voters should believe the latest polls.

Levinson and Levintova also share their views on the future of the media business and why they felt pursuing a MBA would enhance and focus their respective career paths.
