MFJS faculty participate in a live discussion during the Presidential DebateMore than 3,000 journalists from around the world were on campus when DU hosted the first Presidential Debate of 2012. MFJS faculty members Lynn Clark, Derigan Silver and Robert Handley participated in a live web discussion sponsored by Facebook. The group talked about the media's role in the presidential election and how college students view the political process through traditional and new media. 

More than 25 MFJS students also took active roles in the Presidential Debate, acting as student journalists for media outlets such as CNN, PBS and MTV.
