For half a day tomorrow at the Newseum, from 8 a.m. to 12:25 p.m. ET, almost 20 journalists and current and former White House staff will explore the approaching end of the president’s first 100 days, examining in particular the fate of the media and, more broadly, the First Amendment during these first few months of the Trump administration.
The event, called The President and the Press: The First Amendment in the First 100 Days and produced by Betsy Fischer Martin and Tammy Haddad, is sold out, which is unsurprising considering the lineup of speakers and moderators. Fortunately, there will be a livestream, so you can watch newly minted Pulitzer winner David Fahrenthold in the opening “press as a watchdog” session, or Press Secretary Sean Spicer in conversation with MSNBC anchor Greta Van Susteren, or counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway in conversation with Michael Wolff–we’ll be keeping our eyes on that one.
Check out the full schedule below.
