There's a panel discussion about how the media influences public opinion at The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage Wednesday, November 20 at 7:00pm. It's in conjunction with the run of this world premiere exhibit. AM 1420 11th Hour host Jim McIntyre will be joined by Thor Wasbotten, Director of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Kent State University, and Brennan Donnellan, News Director at WKYC Channel 3. The panel will be moderated by Cool Cleveland founder Thomas Mulready.
Alfred Dreyfus was a French soldier who was wrongly convicted of spying more than 100 years ago. Media coverage contributed largely to the public's perception of Drefus' guilt, according to Director of Education and Public Programming at the Maltz Museum, Jill Rembrandt. She says the Dreyfus Affair is still "relevant in a million different ways."
